The non-resident essential workers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before January 22 when they cross the land borders of the United States or the ferry terminals, the White House was expected to announce soon.

Truck drivers, emergency services, and government officials will be subject to the same rules as those who cross the border from Canada or Mexico for pleasurea senior official in President Biden’s administration said Tuesday.

Under the new policy, US citizens and permanent residents could still enter the US, even if they had not been vaccinated, but would face additional COVID-19 testing as a public health precaution and a disincentive to remain unvaccinated. according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The White House delayed a vaccination requirement for essential travelers earlier this month so as not to disrupt intracontinental trade, which has continued unabated since the start of the pandemic.

The upcoming regulations were criticized as “unnecessary government mandates” by a trade association representing 150,000 drivers in the United States and Canada.

“These requirements are another example of how impractical regulations will push safe drivers off the road,” said Norita Taylor, spokesperson for the Association of Independent Drivers Owner-Operators.

The border guidelines arrive, as the White House continues to use legal maneuvers to increase the country’s vaccination rates.

About 47 million adults in the country remained unvaccinated Tuesday, according to the CDC.

A blanket policy from Biden that would require workers at large companies to prove their vaccination status or undergo weekly tests and wear masks before Jan.4 was stopped by a federal court last week.
