Seems like wildlife officers and health care workers are playing border guard at some of the provincial border checkpoints. Long version: Last week a riding buddy of mine helped deliver 30 school busses from Halifax to a town a couple hours north of Toronto. All drivers had official government letters citing essential travel being conducted with each province's permission etc. They travelled in groups of three busses, driver only no passengers on the trip north, left at different times, stayed in separate hotels etc. to minimize any congestion and unnecessary contact at food/fuel/rest stops. He saw mostly 18 wheelers and other heavy commercial traffic on the highways. The motels where they stayed were mostly empty and he wonders if hotels/motels were still closed to non essential traffic. My buddy is familiar with that traffic corridor and described the lack of usual traffic as 'creepy'. Despite the drivers all having official letters, commercial driver's licenses, and having the convoy well spread out they were still held up for hours at each provincial checkpoint as each driver's credentials were thoroughly reviewed. He thinks a couple of things which contributed to the delays were that a lot of the drivers were new to Canada and ran into communication problems with the provincial wildlife officers and health officials who were manning the checkpoints. One bus returning with 16 drivers was delayed until after midnight at the last border crossing so they decided to drive the remainder of the night. Unfortunately they hit a moose and totalled the bus outside Halifax early that morning. No one was seriously hurt but just another unnecessary delay for drivers who hadn't slept in 24 hours.
