Most on the Quebec side of the US-Canada have expressed a sign of relief now that only a few hours are left before easing of restrictions regarding crossing between the two countries.
Jean-Pierre Ranger, president of the Parc Safari, said this is the best news he has had in the last two years. He added that the border represents a huge portion of their business at the park.
The park is only one of a handful of businesses that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of borders in March of last year.
As of the start of Monday, the Canadian side of the border will start allowing immunized Americans into the country without then having to quarantine. The returning of tourist movement from Canada’s south has border residents excited as this will boost businesses.
But, some remain puzzled by the changes to rules.
The challenge with crossing the border for some is that the border authorities have not updated their webpage noted Laila Bogdanski, a Montrealer living in Ohio.
Bogdanski stated she is looking forward to visiting family in Canada for the first time since COVID-19 hit, but she is holding off just so that she is sure about the rules.
