Border to open August 9th, if you're vaccinated.

"To be eligible for entry, fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents must present a negative covid-19 molecular test taken within 72 hours of flight departure or arrival at a land crossing. They will also be required to upload proof that they have received a full series of an authorized coronavirus vaccine at least 14 days before departure to a Canadian government app."

Good news for Americans. Effective Aug.9 fully vaccinated us citizens can enter Canada. But no news yet from the USA. Supposedly Homeland Security is not making changes on Wednesday.

Well I thought things had changed just the other day. Had a camper come in with Canadian plates. Got a chance to speak to them later, they are US citizens living in Canada. They said they needed to have their ducks in a row with paper work, but could leave and return without too much hassle.

The press conference today was chaotic English and French at the same time. Each Official just repeated the same speech. There is some confusion on the testing. I had heard them say that testing would be random.

I'm not showing my 'papers' to anybody. Not to cross a border, not to fly in a airplane, not ever. Whatever happened to the HIPPA Law about medical privacy?

As a cop, when HIPPA first came out, we were briefed that at an accident scene, for example, the medics weren't allowed to tell us cops if the person they were working had any DUI symptoms. Yet there's folks demanding to see our vaccination 'papers'.

The HIPAA (1996) is a US federal law that doesn’t apply in Canada. The reality of it is that if anyone decides to refuse proof of vaccination at a Canadian entry point, they will be simply denied entry.

Azdryheat. You can keep your papers private but do not expect to travel outside the USA. Or even enter many concerts,sports events,museums,restaurants and more. Your choice.

That is entirely because of the concept of self-incrimination.

Showing proof you were vaccinated is hardly revealing any confidential medical records.

So you’re ok showing your passport to various folks in the process of travelling somewhere, your D.O.B. etc, etc, clearly displayed, but NOT saying you got 2 jabs in the arm?

Umm, yeah, ok.
