Michigan resident Gina Chirco was one of the first in line when Canada's border opened to fully vaccinated U.S. residents for the first time in a year and a half. Her fiancé, Tony Faneli, was waiting for her in Sarnia, Ontario. Their wedding has been postponed for nearly two years due to the pandemic; they've been waiting until their families on both sides of the border could be together. Chirco lost her mother in December, and it hurt not to be able to cross the border and support her, Faneli says. As well as being fully vaccinated, US visitors must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours.
