WASHINGTON (WCAX) - North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is applauding the lifting of pandemic travel restrictions at the U.S.-Canada border.

The White House says as of next Friday, the U.S. will no longer require international travelers entering the country via air travel to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The process will also begin to end the requirement at border crossings, too.

Stefanik called the decision long overdue.

“It is shameful that President Biden has waited this long to lift the draconian COVID-19 travel restrictions, which have been devastating for Upstate New York and North Country’s families and our economy,” Stefanik, R-New York, said in a statement.
