The US will open its land borders to fully vaccinated travelers

Starting in November, fully vaccinated travelers will be able to cross into the US via its land borders for the first time since March 2020.  The US announced it plans to reopen its borders with Canada and Mexico, both of which closed to non-essential travel at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. While a specific date has not been set, it is expected to happen at some point in November, and US officials have already announced that vaccinated travelers could fly into the country starting some time next month.
