From the news reporting (here and here for a few articles if you want some light reading), it sounds like the Canadians have tested better from the beginning, so they might have a leg-up on opening things back up before the US. It is our opinion that the wisest thing our clients can do is encourage their Canadian members to rely on direction from the province governments and University officials.
Here are two resources that we have found helpful:
- This article explains how Canada is supporting students and universities.
- This website is the Canadian government’s public health guidance. There is not a specific guidance for colleges and universities, so we think it is better for our clients to rely on the CDC guidance (it would be the same anyway).
