On Monday, August 9, the Canadian government plans to start allowing fully vaccinated American citizens and Canadians living in the states, to enter the country for non-essential travel.
Officials say travelers must use ArriveCAN to submit travel information, and if they are eligible to enter, travelers will not be required to quarantine.
The Canadian government says they will require a pre-entry molecular COVID-19 test result regardless of vaccination status. However, officials tell News 4 on August 9, using a new border testing surveillance program at airports and land border crossings, fully vaccinated travelers will not need a post-arrival test unless randomly selected.
