Montana officials frustrated with continued limits on travel from Canada | 406 Politics


In August, Canada opened its border to fully vaccinated U.S. residents.

Montana’s senior U.S. Sen. Jon Tester said there was no basis for the continued restrictions for Canadians who are vaccinated against COVID-19.

“I am bitterly disappointed to learn that the Biden Administration has once again decided to unnecessarily keep Montana’s northern land border closed for at least another month,” Tester, a Democrat, said in a press release. “There is no good reason to prohibit fully vaccinated travelers from crossing the border into the U.S. to conduct business and visit friends and family, and this shortsighted decision will hurt folks in Montana and Canada that depend on trade and travel to stay in business. The Biden Administration needs to follow the science and reopen the border to fully vaccinated Canadians so that both of our economies can continue recovering from this crisis.”
