    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Canada-US border to remain closed until at least October 21, 2020

    Good morning everyone,

    The Canada-US border will remain closed to all non-essential travel until at least until October 21, 2020. This refers to the land crossings.

    For the record, essential travel refers to health-care workers who live in one country and work in the other (ie, Canadian nurses who live in Windsor, Ontario and work at hospitals in Detroit) and long-distance truck drivers carrying goods in both directions.

    As always regarding this topic, facts only. No editorializing. It is what it is.

    yes it is what it is.
    however on this aruba.com forum commentaries are welcomed and (sorry even if it is editorializing.)
    as long as it is not breaking the rules and it is not inserting false information, as moderator I am saying it is welcomed.


    our country club is hurting badly and could be on the verge of folding as a result of the Canadians not allowed to come back to the USA.
    we have 200 members and of those 200, 50 are Canadian.
    we cannot expect them to renew if they cannot come to their Winter homes.
    once the borders open, it will be just as difficult due to the excessive costs of the covid health insurance supplements required.

    covid has such far reaching impacts.

    Lots of countries have closed their borders to air and land crossings. At least with Canada, you can fly in. My sister-in-law's friend's daughter lives in the US and she was able to fly in with the kids to Toronto, but had to quarantine in a friend's home (while they were away traveling within Canada) in from her family for 14 days before going to spend time with them.
