If you’re a U.S. citizen, and you’ve had all your COVID shots for at least 14 days, and you have a negative COVID test and you fill out an online form proving all of those things, you can once again visit Canada starting August 9th.

People who have to cross the border for essential work have been permitted during the pandemic.

But Canada hadn’t yet re-opened its borders to tourists.

U.S. residents will be the first allowed in on Aug 9. People from other nations could be allowed in starting September 7th if COVID cases remain low, according to the latest plan from the government.
