WASHINGTON D.C. (NMB) – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has announced that Canadians who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will soon be able to cross the land border into the U.S. for non-essential travel.
An exact date has not been set, but the restrictions are expected to be relaxed in early November.
Montana’s entire Congressional Delegation, as well as Governor Greg Gianforte, had been pushing for this reopening for months. Montana’s border with Canada stretches across 545 miles, and many towns on both sides rely on trade and commerce.
This comes after Canada reopened their land border with the U.S. to fully vaccinated non-essential tourists back on August 9th.
