Quoting from someone in Montreal who spoke to border control and said that even US citizens in Canada are not allowed to come into America and are stuck there. As for Canadian citizens, they are being allowed into Canada for now. A minor who is a US citizen can go into Canada with a parent who is a Canadian citizen. However, a spouse who is not a Canadian citizen is not able to come into Canada even with proof of marriage.

Sounds very strange that a country wouldn't allow a person to go back to his home country. Especially that they announced it to be effective the same day without prior notice. DROBC and use common sense.

Can't be true.

All Canadians stay home!

Trudeau announced that Canadians without “adequate locations for quarantine” will be forced to quarantine in an hotel. Basically, don’t leave, as upon renetry it will be up to the border agent to decide if you can go home. Also if you don’t live in Canada,  don’t assume your Canadian passport will help you, as you might end up in an hotel. (Although I’m wondering if that’s a good way to achieve elite status...)

Though I agree with most of what Canada has implemented, Trudeau is a joke, posting selfies from his country home over the weekend while the country is told to shelter at home.

Correct, and the conservative leader isn’t much better. Canada is starting to feel somewhere between a police state and a joke.

Agreed. The only one who seems to be stepping up his game is Doug Ford. Real class act if you ask me.

That was his brother. He’s a very decent and effective politician.

Although his news conferences sound like he’s telling a bedtime story with someone acting out the motions, and the grandmother standing in the background.

I know someone with Canadian citizenship and USA citizenship they as of a week ago had no issues entering the US.

I find it hard to believe the US has a right or will  refuse entry to a US citizen.

FYI: for those spouses that need to get back to Canada [without citizenship]  , there is a way to do it legally. Read the laws and the exceptions and tailor yourself to those.  I'm not encouraging this but there are those that need to do it in unique circumstances.

Correct but without the legal right to re entry, it’s all risky. Also even citizens need to provide “an adequate location where they will quarantine” or end up in an hotel.

Yeah, I heard they are stopping into houses and counting how many adults are there, [from relative living there].

Happy to live in the USA.

Good part, I do think that construction is opening back up on Monday.

Canada and the US have agreed to extend their agreement to keep border closed to non-essential travel to June 21 during the coronavirus pandemic.

Anybody know anything or have any experience entering Canada as a Commercial vehicle, to avoid quarantine?
