With leisure travel to the United States restricted by vehicle, Canadian citizens can still board a plane and fly down south if they’d like to.

Popular travel destinations like Arizona, California, and Florida do not require a 14-day quarantine period, but some Canadian snowbirds aren’t convinced it’s safe enough to go down yet.
