The 15-month closure of the border between the United States and Canada was looking like it could soon come to an end, though officials from both countries had yet to commit to anything publicly.

Then an announcement Wednesday from the Canadian government appeared to set the stage for a slower reopening than many on both sides of the border had hoped.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acknowledged Tuesday that the country’s climbing vaccination rate will allow for easing of COVID-19 restrictions “in the coming days and months.”

That includes easing the closure of the U.S.-Canada border, which has remained off limits to non-essential travel since the onset of the pandemic in March 2020.

But on Wednesday, the Canadian government announced a minor loosening of the border restrictions that will allow those already permitted to enter the country to avoid a hotel quarantine.
