All We Can Do Now is Hope for the Best
A Brief Comment by Doug Draper at Niagara At Large

For the first time in a year and a half, border bridges between the Canada and United States are open to fully vaccinated Americans.
Despite rising daily case counts of COVID-19 in both countries – thanks in large part to a highly infectious Delta variant of the virus and far too many people who resist getting vaccinated – Canada’s Liberal government has followed through on its announced plans a few weeks back to open the border to fully vaccinated Americans.
Those Americans crossing the Peace Bridge, Rainbow Bridge and other points of entry must also get a COVID-19 test, showing that they are not infected, before they arrive.
It seems like a fairly safe plan, under the circumstances, and only time will tell if this was a good or bad decision at this time.
All we can do now, I guess, is hope for the best.
As for fully-vaccinated Canadians crossing over to the United States, that is still a no-no.
