U.S. to reopen border to vaccinated Canadians in November: US Congressman

The United States will reopen the land border to fully vaccinated Canadians next month, according to U.S. Congressman Brian Higgins.
“At long last, there is action by the United States to open the doors and welcome back our Canadian neighbors … For months now we’ve heard from businesses that are suffering and families distraught over the separation imposed by the continued border shutdown. The sigh of relief coming from Northern Border communities following this announcement is so loud it can practically be heard on either end of the Peace Bridge.” Higgins said in a statement Tuesday night.
Proof of vaccination will be required, but it’s not clear if that includes mixed doses.

Further details will be made public by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security tomorrow. The new vaccine rules are expected to apply to land and ferry crossings. Similar rules were announced last month for international air travelers.

The U.S.-Canada border has been closed since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic in March of 2020, only allowing essential travelers.

Canada reopened land borders to fully vaccinated U.S. visitors on August 9th.

The U.S. Representative has been advocating for the reopening of the border. Higgins is the Congressman for 26th District which includes Niagara Falls, a border community in Ontario.
