Canadian officials provide update on latest COVID-19 border measures | LIVE
CA, 20 Nov 2021
Canadian federal officials will provide an update Friday on plans to ease some of the COVID-19 pandemic-related measures at the Canada-U.S. border.
Officials are expected to do away with the rule that requires travellers taking short trips to the United States to present a negative molecular COVID-19 test in order to get back into the country.
The policy change will cover both citizens and permanent residents. It is expected the new rules will come into effect at the end of November or early December.
Any trips longer than 72 hours outside of Canada will still need a negative PCR test upon return.
The U.S. reopened its land border to Canadians who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 on Nov. 8.
