    Not official yet, but might want to consider a plan B if you were hoping to go to the US this summer.

    https://ca.reuters.com/article/topNews/idCAKBN23G301
    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada and the United States are set to extend a ban on non-essential travel to late July as both countries seek to control the spread of the coronavirus, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

    Washington and Ottawa introduced month-long restrictions in March and renewed them in April and May. The ban, currently due to expire on June 21, does not affect trade.

    Canadian and U.S. sources said although the governments had not yet taken a final decision, a further extension was highly likely.

    “It’s going to be a clean rollover” on June 21, said a U.S. source who requested anonymity given the sensitivity of the situation. “We will want to look at it again in July.”

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security was not immediately available for comment.

    Data show that while the outbreak is slowing across the 10 Canadian provinces, new cases show little sign of abating in Toronto and Montreal, the country’s two largest cities.

    A majority of provinces have privately told Ottawa they are reluctant to resume non-essential travel, said a second source.

    Several provinces have clamped down on travel within Canada, and a third Canadian source said these inter-provincial restrictions would make it hard to lift the ban on non-essential travel with the United States.

    More than 110,000 people have died of the coronavirus in the United States, one of the world’s worst-hit nations. Canada reported 7,835 deaths, and 96,244 coronavirus cases on June 9.

    A spokeswoman for Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, who has overall responsibility for ties with the United States, said both sides agreed the ban had worked well.

    Extending the measures would hurt Canadian airlines and the tourism industry.

    Carriers, including Air Canada, have been among the worst hit as travel bans resulted in thousands of flight cancellations, forcing carriers to cut jobs and costs.

    “There is a push from some sectors for reopening (the border), like Air Canada,” a Canadian government source said.

    Asked about reopening the border, Air Canada said in a statement that governments around the world are relaxing restrictions and said it was working with tourism and industry groups to “streamline and clarify rules around travel”.

    Transat is probably the worst airline in Canada. Although all the "tour operator airlines" are pretty rough.

    I'd rather get COVID than fly Transat again.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    I was told WestJet can rebuttal and then you have to provide your side of dispute. So it's a temporary credit up to 3 months before its considered a done deal.

    Canada- U.S. border to remain closed to non-essential travel until July 21

    The Canada-U.S. border will remain closed to non-essential travel for at least another 30 days to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus as confirmed cases in the United States continue to climb past the two million mark.

    The deal was set to expire on Sunday but will now extend until July 21, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced during his daily news conference today.

    "This is an important decision that will keep people in both of our countries safe," he said.

    Both countries reached an agreement in March to temporarily close the border to non-essential travel — meaning no recreational visits — while keeping it open to commercial traffic and essential workers who cross the border for work, and has already extended the deal twice so far.

    The ban on non-essential travel covers the land border between the two countries, as well as air, sea and rail travel into Canada. Non-essential travel by air and sea to the U.S. is still allowed.

    Last week the federal government announced it will now allow some immediate family members separated by the temporary COVID-19 travel restrictions to cross the border into the country.

    The tweak applies to foreign nationals who are immediate family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents and who do not have COVID-19 or are showing any signs or symptoms of the coronavirus, "or who do not have reason to believe they have COVID-19."

    Anyone who enters the country will have to self-quarantine for 14 days.

    The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases globally has surpassed eight million, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. More than 2.1 million of those cases are in the United States. There have been more than 437,000 deaths from COVID-19 around the world, with more than 116,000 of them in the U.S.

    In Canada, the number of confirmed and presumptive coronavirus cases has surpassed 99,000, with 29,878 of them still active. A CBC News tally of deaths based on provincial data, regional health information and CBC's reporting stood at 8,093 on Tuesday morning.

    Seems like Americans flocking to Banff, Waterton and other locations on the "driving to Alaska" loop hole.
