Border towns ready to welcome back tourist traffic
Earlier this week, the Federal Government announced that starting July 5 restrictions for fully vaccinated when entering Canada will be easing. Fully vaccinated Canadians won’t have to complete the 14-day isolation period, but still have to show a negative test when entering. Meanwhile, south of the border, the U.S. Government has been pushing Canada to reopen the international border this summer which has been closed for 16 months.
Deputy Mayor of the Village of Coutts, Scott McCumber, says once the borders reopen, the village is hoping to see more traffic.
The border remains closed for all non-essential traffic until at least July 21st.
