  1. I took a look online and it seems to be a US company. They talk about out of state coverage and out of country (US) coverage, etc. How does that work for Canadian travellers?
  2. Unfortunately, there are no Sobeys stores located in la belle province. As for SDM, I think you'll find that their hours vary from location to location.
  3. I have no personal experience with the clinic, but it has a Better Business Bureau rating of A+, and the BBB has received zero complaints. That sound pretty good to me.
  4. I find this website very good for providing a wide range of options: https://www.rome2rio.com/
  5. They are far safer aboard a Celebrity ship, where the crew and vast majority of passengers are tested and fully vaccinated than they are at home, at school, playing with their friends, participating in group activities, etc., etc.. Three of my grandchildren fall in that age category, and I have far greater concern for their well being at home than I would be if we took them on another cruise.
  6. Agreed, particularly as the US will be ahead of most countries in approving and administering the 5-11 vaccines. Given the small number of children in this age group, and the testing and vaccination requirements for the 12 and up passengers, I view the potential threat from unvaccinated 5-11 year olds as miniscule.
  7. Lots of discussion on this already, including this thread started a couple of days ago that you will find informative:
  8. I'd suggest that with NCL's updating of the full listing of accepted vaccines, they have simply missed updating what is only an asterisked footnote. The updated list clearly takes precedence IMO, and @gmbhardy's letter from NCL with a link to the "What vaccines will be accepted" FAQ supports that belief.
  9. As it has come up in a few different threads, do US CBP officials want to see the CDC Attestation document during pre-clearance, or do they leave that to the airline to deal with?
  10. It certainly will be interesting to see how the different cruise lines respond after January 15. The announcement that Celebrity has now extended its COVID-19 Assistance program until the end of April I found both surprising and reassuring, and it's certainly indicative of them having no immediate intention of chucking out all of the restrictions and protocols driven by the CSO come January 16.
  11. I've seen a few posts from people saying that they've uploaded a photo of their DL to avoid having to get out the DL itself. It will be interesting to see how many establishments will accept them and how many follow the restaurant's physical ID requirement.
  12. March 13 Equinox. Unfortunate timing for the flight down because of March break, but it was a Lift & Shift from earlier this year and was the only sailing that met the L&S parameters.
  13. The US CDC requires an Attestation form for all passengers, attesting to the fact that you've been tested. The form is on the AC website, but I can't seem to find it today. However, here's a copy directly from the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/pdf/Fillable-Attestation-English-p.pdf I believe that AC will want to see the form, or might even have you upload a copy during check in. I don't know whether you will have to show it during pre-clearance, with or without the SDM document, so perhaps someone else who has gone through the process recently could chime in.
  14. Your SDM written results will meet the requirements for both your flight and for your cruise. Don't forget that you will also require your proof of vaccination for the YOW-YUL leg. I suggest that you go to the AC pages to read up on their specific requirements. Here's a good starting place: https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home/book/travel-news-and-updates/2020/covid-19/document-validation.html#/
  15. While my DL and Health Card don't expire until 2024, I thought that I'd best sign up now before I forget! 😇. It was quick and easy. While I'm somewhat mystified by the lack of publicity given to this new process, I think that automated digital reminders are a great way of saving the costs associated with printing and mailing them out. Mr. Ford, would you now consider digital drivers licenses and health cards for our digital wallets?
  16. There is a paucity of direct flights from Ottawa to Orlando, resulting in the need to fly via Toronto (or Montreal). As one must change planes in Toronto, pre-clearance is handled there.
  17. If you are looking just for fellow Canadians on this cruise, you've come to the right place. But if you are looking for all passengers, you would be better served going to the Roll Call for this sailing:
  18. There has been some speculation along those lines, but I think that it is more likely that it will remain in place until the CDC lets the Conditional Sailing Order expire. It has now been extended until January 15, 2022. Assuming, of course, that the decision will be based on any external factor.
  19. Please let us know what the situation is like coming back via YUL. I'm considering changing our return flight in March but won't bother if it's just as bad there.
  20. At the current time, there is no vaccination requirement to fly from Canadian airports. That doesn't become effective until October 30, at which time you will need to provide proof of vaccination for any flight, domestic or international. As the OP doesn't fly until next week, he will need to provide proof of vaccination starting with his flight to Toronto. As a negative COVID test is required by the CDC for flights into the US, OP will need to provide proof for his onward flight to Fort Lauderdale. This is not a new requirement and has no tie in to the November 8 land crossing regulations.
  21. For reasons best known to the current Ontario administration, you now have to sign up to get reminders. Now, I have to remember to sign up for reminders. Overview An Ontario driver’s licence is valid for 5 years. You must renew it every 5 years either online or at a ServiceOntario centre. Sign up to get emails, text messages or phone call reminders 60 and 30 days before it’s time to renew your licence plate sticker, driver’s licence or health card.
  22. As we have had annual coverage with Medoc for a good number of years, the annual premium is very reasonable, and we have been very pleased with their claim service, we've really not looked around at other insurers. We did before starting with Medoc, and our group rate and coverage couldn't be matched by other companies. I expect that's the same today. As Blue Cross is one of the few companies that does provide Covid-related medical coverage, they are definitely worth looking at by anyone currently looking for insurance.
