Officials in Canada announced Monday that they will begin allowing fully-vaccinated Americans to enter the country in about two weeks.

According to the Associated Press, Canada will allow Americans to enter the country and forego a 14-day quarantine beginning August 9.

Canada will also lift restrictions on travelers from the rest of the world on September 7.

At the White House press briefing on Monday, press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is still reviewing travel policies regarding the Canadian border and would base its decision on the guidance of health experts.

Canadians are currently able to enter the U.S. by plane, according to the Associated Press.

According to The Washington Post, non-essential travel by land between the U.S. and Canada has been closed since March 2020 and has been extended month-by-month ever since.
