TORONTO, Canada — Canada will begin letting fully vaccinated U.S. citizens into Canada on Aug. 9, and those from the rest of the world on Sept. 7.

Canadian officials say the 14-day quarantine requirement will be waived as of Aug. 9 for eligible travelers who are currently residing in the United States and have received a full course of a Covid-19 vaccine approved for use in Canada.

Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said Monday a date for the U.S. to allow fully vaccinated Canadians to cross the land border isn’t yet known. Any Canadian can fly to the U.S.

There was no immediate word on the fate of Mexican border crossings, which like Canada, have been limited to essential traffic only during the pandemic. The current restriction runs through Wednesday unless it is extended for another month, which has occurred routinely for over a year.
