Anybody have any tips to enter Canada as a US citizen? I want to do a duty free run :)

How well can you swim in the dark?

The press is full with reports that Canada is preparing to open its border to vaccinated travelers.  Perhaps this will be announced on or before the current restrictions are set to expire on June 22.

Can a Canadian citizen still enter Canada with their American spouse and young American children?

+1, status of this, and what are the restrictions/regulations? (AFAF)

What a joke.

It's far better than the present situation with a 14 day quarantine and having to fly to BUF.

Hardly.  It's simply an improvement from the past 15 months.  Does anyone know why, to this day, the CDC requires a COVID test for fully vaccinated persons to enter the US?

You realize that at this point, itís pretty much common knowledge that almost anything and everything the CDC has done has been absolute and complete horsesh*t?

That is an easy one. Because Trump didn't.

The negative test requirement for vaccinated people was implemented under the Trump administration.

My Covid test result taken Monday hasnít arrived and Iím flying to BUF today.   Iím afraid something got messed up at Quest. Itís never taken so long.  Thereís a rapid test in the airport but Canada doesnít accept antigen tests.  What should I do when I get to BUF?

A few ideas:

Is there anywhere else that you can go for a 2nd test with quicker results? Wasn't there a guy in monsey that guarantees a few hours? Not sure where you're located. (Or was that antigen?)

You can fly to BUF in hopes that you get results by the time you're there, and stay overnight in BUF if you don't.

Look for somewhere in BUF that does quick PCRs.

How big are the fines for not providing a test? (Assuming you're a Canadian citizen) If you have an antigen test and a PCR in progress maybe they'll waive/reduce the fine as you can show them you tried?

I just boarded my flight to ATL then connecting to BUF.  I have my vaccination card but of course Canada doesnít recognize that contrary to its own expert panel.  I imagine they canít refuse a citizen entry even without a test. And they test you at the border again.  Can I offer to go to a government facility until the border test comes back?

They can fine you for coming without a test
