It is my understanding that many Canadians get some type of private insurance rider for health coverage, while they are in transit across the US. Health coverage in the US is treated like a separate entity by most health insurance firms, worldwide, because of the high cost of medical care.

One Canadian we know said that she received notification from that insurance company that their rider would no longer be in effect after March 26. Most likely, this rescinding of coverage is due to CV-19.

This may be an additional reason why so many Canadians have left San Carlos in the last week. For several we knew, they were leaving a few weeks early.

There is also the uncertainty about the border situation.
