After a year and a half of border crossing travel restrictions, the United States has announced their plans to open borders to foreign travelers that are vaccinated.
Non-essential travel that requires border crossing from Canada or Mexico into the US will be permitted with proof of vaccination. USA Today is reporting that the policy change concerning the border reopening is set to happen in early November, but no particular date has been set.
A senior White House administrator spoke with reporters over the phone and shared, “This is an important step that will further enhance the safety of international travel and the safety of Americans at home. These new vaccination requirements deploy the best tool we have in our arsenal to keep people safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
