The Canadians have taken this virus far more seriously than we have. It’s their right and duty to protect their citizens.

Lwiddis,

Not carefully or soon enough.

228 deaths per million people is NOT a success story. Quebec has been extremely hard hit.

Canadian govt maybe...we have several Canadian friends and they are ticked off that they can't cross the border.

Nailed it.

I'd also like the border to open asap. Closed it's costing me money.
The border opening "review" is supposed to be July 21.
If it goes past the 31st, and it appears it may, then good call Gary, although the supporting docs you posted previously didn't necessarily support the extension. I'll buy you a beer next Fall/Winter when all the Snowbirds flock west to BC.

Apparently the summer sun/heat isn't killing off the Virus. I think the US will be closing again.

Keep hearing about a lot of positives on vaccines and such, but nothing solid. Seems many companies and governments are working on it. We had 2 trips auto-cancel on us, and now our summer vacation is to a local state park to camp vs. mountains or ocean view campsites.

I just hope a serious vaccine is found and implemented soon....

I've always thought the "summer heat" theory was rather funny. Especially as the virus survived just fine in the tropics on cruise ships. If cases continue to rise we will all be camping in our back yards instead of at campgrounds in other countries.

The problem with a vaccine is that it targets a single variant of a virus. There are a dozen or so flu viruses each with it's own vaccine. They try to guess each year which three strains might be present and put those three vaccines into the flu shot. Sometimes they guess wrong and it seems they can't put more than three into a single shot.

The COVID-19 virus has been reported to have already mutated into as many as 30 different variants and if so there's not much hope of stamping it out with a vaccine. We probably should have been focusing much more attention on treatments than vaccines.

It may be painful to hear but I suspect our best chances of dealing with this longer term come down to 1) herd immunity, 2) virus disappears just like SARS did, or 3) good, inexpensive and effective treatments for those infected.
