U.S. Land Border Will Open to Vaccinated Individuals

19-month closure comes to an end.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Wednesday that the United States would be reopening its land borders with Canada and Mexico Fully to people who have received the COVID-19 inoculation. The borders will be reopened at the start of November. Vaccinated Americans have been allowed to enter Canada since August of this year. 

The CDC said that it would accept any vaccine approved by the World Health Organization, not just those approved for use in the United States. Travelers will need to be able to provide proof of vaccination to border control agents upon entering the country. The CDC also recently stated that it would no longer have a country-based ban on entering the country via air travel and would simply require foreign nationals to show proof of vaccination upon arrival. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the president would seek God’s direction as he implements COVID strategies.
  • For officials in the CDC as they provide recommendations for the public and the nation.
  • That the Department of Homeland Security would effectively screen those arriving in the country.
