According to U.S. officials, the United States is set to open its land borders with Canada and Mexico early next month to vaccinated travellers.

There have been restrictions on non-essential travel since March 2020.

Under the new rules non-essential travellers will be asked about their vaccination status at land border crossings, and only those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be let in.

Travellers who received any vaccines approved for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization will be allowed to enter. That means Canadians who received AstraZeneca will be included.
