ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The United States is extending restrictions on nonessential travel with Canada and Mexico through Oct. 21.

The restrictions were first implemented back in March 2020 and have since been extended every month.

Canada announced it would waive its quarantine requirement for U.S. citizens who have been fully vaccinated starting on Aug. 9.

When Canada opened its side of the border to fully vaccinated U.S. citizens, the U.S. did not open its side of the border to Canadian citizens, but Americans are permitted to come back to the U.S. after visiting Canada.
