The U.S. will close its borders to unvaccinated and partially vaccinated Canadian and Mexican truck drivers on Saturday.
That’s right, “partially vaccinated” doesn’t count either.
Truck drivers from Canada and Mexico are among the travelers who will not be allowed to cross the borders into the United States unless they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, effective Jan. 22.
“Americans are struggling with higher prices and scarce goods, at the grocery store, the gas pump, and diners across the country,” said Transportation Intermediaries Association President and CEO Anne Reinke. “One way to make this drastically worse overnight is to take tens of thousands of truck drivers and forbid them from entering the country, leaving countless amounts of essential freight at the doorstep of our country.”
I’m a truck driver and this is madness.
We live in a truck and barely come in contact with others.
Even at customer locations they mostly don’t let us inside their buildings, a guard with a mask will come up to my door, take my bills and tell me what door to back into.
On very rare occasions we do go inside its required We wear a mask to be served.
If masks work then why the mandates?
Current vaccines do not prevent transmission either.
