Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today released the following statement after Canada announced it will drop some of its border testing requirements.
“I have been calling on Canada to drop its testing requirements, and this decision is a positive step forward for our Upstate New York and North Country families, tourism, and small businesses,” Stefanik said. “However, there is still more work left to do to fully restore our communities. I’m calling on the United States to lead the path forward by dropping all COVID-19 requirements and fully restore Northern Border travel, and Canada should follow. It’s time to return to normalcy.”
Beginning on April 1, Canada will no longer require testing for vaccinated Americans to enter Canada or for vaccinated Canadians returning home after short visits to the U.S.
