Canadian snowbirds in flux as insurance firms deny them COVID coverage

Description (Dublin Core)

"Many Canadian snowbirds — retirees who spend their winters in warmer climates — are concerned about travelling south, especially to the United States."
"Undoubtedly, they are influenced by Global Affairs Canada’s ongoing COVID-19 travel advisory, recommending that Canadians “avoid all non-essential travel outside Canada and to avoid all cruise ship travel until further notice.” The ban has meant that Canadian insurers are not issuing travel health insurance for people who ignore the advisory, putting snowbirds at risk for health expenses related to COVID-19 and other ailments."
