July 14th Update

Canada and the US agreed to extend the border closure for another 30 days till August 21st. This announcement was expected and is of little consequence as the 14 day quarantine order is still in place till the 31st of August.
So where do we stand today.....Well again, Canada is doing really well, we average 200-350 cases total for the entire country per day. Things are re-opening slowly, and we are still seeing a decline in total new cases. From what we have seen on the news, it looks like the US is not doing so well on the numbers of new cases each day. There are many states that have more total cases than we have seen in all of Canada. With these figures, it is easy for the Canadian Government to justify the border closure extension.
Do we think the border will open at all this season? I have no idea, and ultimately it will be the downturn of the US numbers that will signal to the Canadian Government that things are ready to move forward.
But on the upside... some more family time in Buzzard Lake.
Take care and stay safe!
