Biden splits from Trudeau, extending travel curbs at U.S.-Canada land border

Source: Seattle Times

TORONTO — The United States on Wednesday renewed its pandemic curbs on nonessential travel at the U.S.-Canada land border for at least a month, marking a split with its northern neighbor and close ally on the restrictions, and fueling rancor on both sides of the frontier.

The Department of Homeland Security said in a tweet that the extension of the measures, which also apply at the U.S.-Mexico land border — set to expire Aug. 21 — was motivated in part by a desire to decrease the spread of the highly transmissible delta coronavirus variant.

“DHS is in constant contact with Canadian and Mexican counterparts to identify the conditions under which restrictions may be eased safely and sustainably,” the agency said.

The announcement comes several days after Canada said it would begin to open up its borders to some foreigners for discretionary travel, beginning with fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents living in the United States on Aug. 9; and fully vaccinated people from elsewhere on Sept. 7.

1. My idiot brother booked a campground in Banff for early August,

and was pissed when he had to cancel. He thought travel would be wide open by now.

My husband, a Canadian, is currently in Alberta for ten days visiting his 101-year-old mother for the first time in two years. He needed a test before and will need a test to return, but no quarantine at either side.

I think both instances are appropriately regulated at this time.
