After more than a year of waiting, some Americans are finally going to be allowed into Canada without having to quarantine beginning next month.

The Canadian government says as of August 9th, U.S. residents who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can cross the border without having to quarantine after arriving. However, they’ll have to provide proof that they’ve been immunized, be tested for coronavirus before their trip, and have no symptoms of the illness.

The border between both countries has been shut down since March of 2020 in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Canada isn’t the only one that laid down rules at the border… Prime Minister Trudeau is waiting for President Biden to lift some of his restrictions.
