Reminder: If you've been traveling outside the country (anywhere) you should be self-isolating yourself for 14 days when you return. Our government is taking steps to help us protect ourselves, but things are about a week behind where they should be. And what we do this week will define the next 6. From what I'm hearing from travelers, our airports are not yet up to par in terms of screening, or giving out info. We'll be far better off if we do the right thing ourselves *before* things become mandatory.
