Assemblyman Jones: Lifting Testing Requirements for Short-Term Visitors from Canada is Welcomed News

“For weeks I have been calling for the requirements for the land border crossing to be the same for both sides of the border, and the recent news that the Canadian government is expected to lift the COVID-19 testing requirements for Canadians who spend less than 72 hours in the United States is welcomed. The burdensome testing requirement has prevented day trippers and short-term visitors from coming to the North Country, and our regional economies have suffered long enough due to the border closure and it is past time that these requirements were adjusted. I will continue advocating for lifting the requirements for Americans.”
