Canadian deputy PM speaks in Washington after US border reopening update | FULL
CA, 15 Oct 2021
Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland is expected to hold a media availability at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC, on Thursday following news that the U.S. will reopen its land borders with Canada and Mexico in early November to travellers who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
White House officials said non-essential travellers will be asked about their vaccination status at crossings, and only those who are fully vaccinated will be allowed through. Proof of vaccination will be required if selected for random screening.
No COVID-19 testing will be required to enter the U.S. by land or sea, provided visitors meet vaccination requirements, officials said. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test is still required to board a flight to the U.S.
Fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents have been allowed to cross into Canada by land for vacation since August, so long as they’ve been fully inoculated for two weeks with a Health Canada approved vaccine.
