TORONTO – The United States will accept travelers with AstraZeneca vaccine, a lawyer is suing the federal government over refugees, and Moderna will not share its vaccine recipe. Here’s what you need to know to start your day.

1. Travel to the United States: Canadians immune to COVID-19 with the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine can visit the United States when new regulations take effect next month, but it is not yet clear whether those with mixed doses will make the cut.

2. “Bring Our Canadians Home”: A lawyer suing the federal government to force it to bring back 26 Canadians with ISIS connections from Syrian refugee camps says time is running out.

3. Vaccine recipe: Moderna has no plans to share the recipe for its COVID-19 vaccine, the company’s president said on Monday, as executives concluded that increasing the company’s production is the best way to increase global supply.

4. Health care legislation: For the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nova Scotia legislature will sit on Tuesday with a full membership of 55 members.

5. Gender bias: Girls today are ready to break free from sexist stereotypes about play and creative activities, but their parents – and society in general – are holding them back, according to a new study commissioned by the LEGO Group.

One more thing…

Hidden planets: Scientists have heard a message from the stars – in particular, radio signals from distant red dwarf stars that they believe could indicate the presence of hidden planets.
