This shouldn’t come as a surprise but the partial border closure between Canada and the United States has been extended for another month.
According to Canada’s Public Safety Minister and MP Bill Blair, the extension will be in place until October 21.
“We are extending non-essential travel restrictions with the United States until October 21st,” Blair tweeted on Friday. “We will continue to base our decisions on the best public health advice available to keep Canadians safe.”
In March, all non-essential travel was closed along the border in an attempt to limit the spread of COVID-19. Since, crossings of the border have been mostly restricted to trade goods, essential workers, and citizens returning home.
