It’s all getting more difficult. Never any mention of those who have recovered and have antibodies. I am sure there will be exemptions so we will have to read the details carefully.I found this article interesting, which could impact our travel plans for next year.
You can get a pcr test in the airport mere hours before boarding your flight home
After reading the article, I think I understand, there are still globetrotting Americans (for hunting or otherwise) that have still not received their covid vaccines? I would have thought that those of us that travel internationally would have been the first in line to receive the shots when they became available last spring. Well so much for what I know.
And if you happen to have a false positive, then what? Not much time if you are at the airport,, and will these places retest you to make sure it's not a false positive?
This is my point of contention with the entire international travel/testing mess. If one can show they’ve been vaccinated, why the testing? I’m not going to end up being quarantined in any foreign country on MY dime and using my limited vacation hours from work for an additional two weeks because of a false positive test!And if you happen to have a false positive, then what?

Yep! Google the formerly FDA approved Rofecoxib (Vioxx), used to treat osteoarthritis. Merck withheld information about the drugs risks from the FDA and doctors who had ultimately prescribed it to over 80 million people worldwide for years. Between 88 and 140,000K cases of serious heart disease resulted from it's use. Remember, in the US, clinical trials and the testing of drugs are conducted by the pharmaceutical companies and NOT the FDA. The FDA approves/disapproves drugs based on the information provided by those companies. It has always seemed to me a gross conflict of interest. With the various Covid vaccines produced so quickly, who knows what, if any, long term side effects will result?What happened to those who took Zantac, or Talcum Powder and are now fighting cancer? These products were FDA approved, and years later discovered the link between using these products and cancer. Yes, the vacc may be "good" but what are the possible long term side effects? Is it worth it for someone who is healthy? I say no.
My wife has had it twice (first time we both had it), this time a month ago, she got it from a coworker. We did not quarantine from each other, and I had nothing, and tested negative.
Sorry to hear this. Seems we're at the mercy of whomever makes the decisions in real time regardless of "official" rules. At least you didn't drive 1100 miles to the border just to have to return home. Or worse, having contracted Covid while in Canada and then having to quarantine there before being allowed back into the US?So I got the J&J shot last April, on September 5, I woke up not feeling well, fever, lightheaded, and a cough, I knew I had covid so I isolated myself. I went and had a covid test which was positive. Then the wife got sick, she was not vaccinated, and was sick for about 10 days. My vaccinated buddy got sick about a week after me, ended up in the hospital, said he thought he would be home Wednesday, got a call Tuesday he had died. I had a bear hunt planned in Manitoba, went to get the PCR test 72 hours before entering Canada, I was still positive and was told I would test positive for about 90 days. The Arrive Canada App which you are required to have with all you information downloaded on, says if you have had covid and recovered from covid you can enter Canada with a positive PCR test that is at least18 days old but less than 180 days old. So I called the boarder crossing where we would be crossing, its about 1100 miles from home, I explained my issue to the boarder agent, his answer was no negative PCR test 72 hours before you enter you can't enter. I explained to him what I read on the Arrive Canada App, he didn't care what it said I was not going to be allowed in. So I missed a bear hunt and will most likely miss a deer hunt the first week of November because I most likely will not test negative until December. I got the shot so I could travel to Canada, Mexico, and Africa, my first and second hunt out of country will most likely not happed now, because the people protecting the boarder either don't know the rules or don't care what the rules are?
