US/Canada Border Closed

As a Canadian and a businessman I am very aware that the US/Canadian border is closed to all but essential travel, however US citizens are not as aware of this situation. The bottom line is that while Canada does allow visitors from other countries, those visitors must self-quarantine for 14 days which is impractical for most individuals. And by the way the Canadian government does take it seriously, no tracking of movements by phone, those self isolating are checked on a random basis in person with large fines for not
complying. An example of essential travel would be trucking and installation engineers, non essential travel would be sales people. Its interesting that it is far easier for Canadians to access the US than visa/versa. This really annoying situation has been going on for months now and looks to continue for many more months. One more effect of COVID-19.
