Is there an American  citizen diving across the border in late April that would have room for me, my small dog, and a couple of suitcases?  Or I would pay an American to drive me and my small dog (who weighs 22 pounds) and belongings just across the border at Laredo where my daughter could meet me and pick me up. If interested please call me at 376-766-3420 or email me at jbrickman@mac.com

The border is closed to car traffic right now and has been for over a week.  It is open to foot traffic if you want to walk across.

For border crossing info and wait times go to:  bwt.cbp.gov

That site shows wait times and they show traffic. I really doubt your advisory, sorry.

How are you going to social distance in a car with others, Judy?

probably her issue to figure out - we can't police every situation

I have some friends who drove to border last week with two small dogs, they did not have correct papers, dogs would have to be quarantined 30 days, so they drove back, I am going to keep the dogs while they fly north for a week...

Given the current situation...fly north and a necessary self quarantine of two weeks. Then a week of whatever they plan to do. Fly south and a necessary self quarantine of two weeks before leaving the house. 

Why do I think there's not a chance in hell they'll abide by this?

I am the friend of Ian's. No problems crossing. Couple checkpoints in Mexico where they were taking temperatures and handing out leaflets on the Chinese Virus.

We  (2 Canadians) crossed at Columbia 2 weeks ago with our 2 dogs.  Our dogs have papers (up to date shots; no 'health certificate' as it is not a written requirement in US, Mexico or Canada for crossing).   As has been the case with our 18 crossings, north and south now, no one even noticed the 2 dogs.  We mentioned them to the Border Guard.  He did not ask to see the papers or ask us any questions about them.   Same entering Canada.

FYI 

Coronavirus disease 

(COVID-19)

'CO' for 'corona,' 

'VI' for 'virus,' 

'D' for disease.

Yes, WHO and the UN have a problem with that. They choose not to use proper nouns or geography to name diseases. 

Like the Spanish Flu that originated in Kansas?

@fordtruckman   WHO calls in Coronavirus and COVID 19.  Here is main page WHO's site.  I even searched for Chinese virus at WHOs site, but nada. Same with UN site.  Please stop making things up.
