U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement calling on the Biden Administration to end COVID-19 border restrictions:

“In the words of President Biden, the pandemic is over and now Canada has announced the end of COVID-19 border and quarantine restrictions. I urge the Biden Administration to follow suit of our close trade partner and ally. It’s high time to end restrictions on commercial truck drivers and expand hours of operations at U.S. ports of entry to pre-pandemic schedules. North Dakota, especially our border towns, relies on commerce and visitors from our neighbors to the north.”

Senator Cramer’s statement follows the Canadian government’s announcement they are dropping all COVID-19 border restrictions for anyone entering Canada, including proof of COVID-19 vaccination, quarantine and isolation requirements as well as all pre- or on-arrival COVID-19 testing.
