Some Snowbirds Still Heading South Despite COVID-19 And Closed Land Border
For snowbirds, the ritual of leaving the cold Canadian winter for Florida is not something a virus will stand in the way of. Canadian snowbird Elizabeth Evans is determined to head south next month. "I don't have a [winter] home here," said Evans. "I don't have any winter clothes." The Canadian Snowbird Association — which has more than 110,000 members — said it's hard to gauge at this point what percentage of its members will actually head south. But getting there may not be easy, as the Canada-U.S. land border remains closed to non-essential traffic until at least 21OCT.
