Went today and had a successful shopping trip! Got to the Rainbow Bridge at 10:30am and the line of cars was already to the Canadian side. Took about 40 minutes to get across, but it was just like pre-COVID.

The way back was completely different. There were only 6 cars in front of me so I thought it would be super quick, but the border guard was spending like 10 minutes with each car. I thought for sure that I would be "random" tested since almost everyone in front of me was getting a yellow slip. It ended up taking 40 minutes to go through 7 cars.

When I got to the front the border guard asked me for my passport and nothing else. It was also really odd that they asked you to put your mask on before talking to you. He didn't ask for the ArriveCan QR code or proof of vaccination but he spent like 5 minutes looking at things on his computer and then let me through.
