TORONTO (Reuters)-The Canadian Prime Minister said on Thursday that if current trends in vaccination rates and public health conditions continue, Canada may allow fully vaccinated travelers to enter the country by early September.
According to call records released by Justin Trudeau’s office, Justin Trudeau made the above remarks during a call with Canadian provincial leaders.
Trudeau also said that discussions with the United States are underway to allow fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents to enter Canada for non-essential travel before mid-August.
A statement said: “The Prime Minister pointed out that if our current vaccination rates and public health conditions remain good, Canada will be able to welcome fully vaccinated travelers from all countries by early September.”
Health officials recently stated that approximately 78% of Canadians 12 years of age or older had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Approximately 44% of people 12 years of age or older are vaccinated.
Earlier on Thursday, Canada stated that as the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, large cruise ships will be allowed to visit again from November, but they must fully comply with public health requirements.
