Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is said to be considering easing border restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers.
The prime minister and other health officials within the Canadian government are planning to ease the current 14-day isolation period for tourists who have received two coronaviruses vaccination.
The updated coronavirus restrictions are expected to be announced in the coming days, with travelers entering Canada still being required to test negative before arrival and possibly quarantine for a shorter period of time.
It was reportedly mentioned on Monday that Canada was planning a June 22 start date to begin loosening restrictions at the U.S. border, as long as the country’s vaccination campaign stays on its current trajectory.
The prime minister as well mentioned in a statement that;
“We’re not going to get ahead of ourselves,” Trudeau said. “We are looking at how we’re going to start welcoming up tourists in a phased way as the numbers come down in Canada, as the numbers start to come down in the United States and elsewhere around the world.”
