Washington [US] October 13 (ANI): Washington has announced that it will open its land borders for non-essential travellers from Mexico and Canada from November.

As per the statement from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, fully vaccinated people for COVID-19 from both countries will no longer be restricted from entering the US for non-essential purposes.
