Hey Guys so first of I hope you guys are staying safe and well.
Q. I own an F-1 US Student Visa (enrolling to college this September), my Grandma recently got sick (not COVID-19) but we are still worried about her and I made the decision since I'll be going to the US this Year anyways to fly a bit earlier than expected and actually go to my Grandma to help her a bit out.
Option 1 : But I'm not to sure if I'm allowed to transit the US since I'm only allowed to enter the US 30 days prior to my College Start Date but at the same time I'm not entering the US I'm just transiting without leaving the Airport does anyone know the answers for this?
Option 2 : Fly from Zurich to YYZ (Canada) and then 12 hours later to the Bahamas but yet is the Question can I Transit with my F-1 US Visa in Canada the reason why I'm brining up Canada is because I found this on the Canada.ca ( https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/visit-canada/entry-requirements-country.html )
Foreign nationals in the following situations (Entry requirements by country/territory)
- have proper documents to enter the United States, or
- Were lawfully admitted to the United States.
And if I'm not wrong F-1 Students are "lawfully admitted" to the United States.
Could anyone please help me out that knows it better than me Thank You.

I know that there is currently a ban but doesn't stop people that are transiting via US, CA
