According to American officials, Canadians won’t be able to drive into the United States for a vacation any time soon.

Citing the recent spread of COVID-19, mostly driven by the Delta variant, the Department of Homeland Security has confirmed it is extending measures at American land and ferry crossings until at least Sept. 21.

The decision comes despite Canada allowing fully vaccinated U.S. travellers into this country as of Aug. 9 without having to quarantine for two weeks. 

Meanwhile, air travel to the U.S. is allowed with certain conditions, including proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof that the traveller has recovered from a COVID-19 infection in the past 90 days.

The U.S. says it’s working closely with its partners both domestically and internationally on decisions to resume normal travel.

The restrictions on non-essential travel at the U.S. border have been in place since March 2020.
