Starting Monday, Canada is easing travel restrictions on its borders but only if the country considers travelers to be "essential."
Certain fully-vaccinated visitors will be able to enter Canada without needing to immediately quarantine. However, they will still be tested for COVID-19 when they arrive.
The move, which comes after a strict 16-month closure of the border, allows for Canadian citizens, permanent residents and international students to cross into the country without needing to wait for fourteen days in a hotel.
Canada still considers tourism to be nonessential travel.
