Right now, there is a serious vaccine disparity between the US and Canada, with only 7% of adult Canadians over the age of 18 being fully vaccinated, compared to about 55% of American adults.
Which restrictions they'll be able to dodge is still unclear, and Trudeau gave few other details at a news conference on Tuesday.
The mayors of some border cities said on Monday they expected Canada to move as early as June 21, the next deadline for a possible rollover of restrictions.
A federal source familiar with the policy says the change will go into effect in early July.
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said anyone coming to Canada would need to be fully vaccinated before arriving to prevent a fourth wave of COVID-19, adding that the government is looking at ways to start welcoming back visitors from the USA and elsewhere around the world. They will also have to have a "suitable quarantine plan" as they wait for their airport test results.
But Trudeau, speaking in French, said his government will only ease restrictions "based on science", which is why only fully vaccinated people - in most cases with two doses, with the exception of Johnson & Johnson's, which requires only one dose - will soon be exempt from most precautions.
New names for COVID-19 variants to avoid 'stigmatising' countries
A 11-year-old girl from Ballari district and 14-year-old boy from Chitradurga district have been infected with the fungal disease. There are still 2,026,065 active cases in the country, as there was a decrease of 88,416 cases in the past 24 hours.
We reported this week that political frustration is mounting in the USA, where 53 per cent of adults are fully vaccinated; normal activities are resuming, with sports, bars and music venues filling; and COVID-19 cases are dropping.
Diodati said Blair did not expand upon the restrictions that could be eased, but a suggestion was that anyone fully vaccinated would be able to cross the border with proof of vaccination.
Despite being pressed by reporters wanting to know on Tuesday exactly when the looser restrictions will be announced, Trudeau avoided using precise language.
"The requirement to stay in a government hotel is being lifted for people who now have the right of entry to Canada", she said.
In late May, just after the restrictions were rolled over for another month, Canada's COVID-19 Testing and Screening Expert Advisory Panel called for an end of the hotel quarantine program for all travellers. "There will be announcements to make in due course". It isn't clear when the changes would be implemented or whether Canada will open up its borders to non-U.S. travelers at the same time.
Canadian officials have previously said the border should stay partially closed until 75% of the population has received their first shots and 20% their second. The mandatory 14-day quarantine has also been in place since then.
