Canadian and American officials have reportedly begun discussing the question of when the Canada-U.S. border will open up again.
According to an article in Bloomberg News, reopening "probably isn't imminent" but officials from both countries have begun considering restriction options for vaccinated travellers.
Non-essential travel restrictions with the United States have been extended until May 21st, 2021. We will continue… https://t.co/qHU1AxyFwu— Bill Blair (@Bill Blair) 1618925452.0
One such option includes a "two-track system," Bloomberg reported, in which testing and quarantine restrictions would be loosened for travellers who have been vaccinated.
In an emailed statement to Narcity, Minister of Public Safety Bill Blair's director of communications, James Cudmore, said he could not confirm Bloomberg's reporting and said the Canada-U.S. border closure could be extended beyond its current expiration date of May 21.
"Minister Blair is in regular contact with his American counterparts about issues relating to our shared border," Cudmore said. "Until the conditions on both sides of the border change very substantively, the measures at our borders will remain intact."
