US and CANADIAN Border Closed until at Least December 21, 2020.

Canada says it will continue to restrict all non-essential travel to and from the US until the coronavirus outbreak is much less serious in both nations.

The comments by Canadian Public Safety Minister Bill Blair suggest that the ban on travel could stay for months to come as cases continue to spike in both countries   

The measures, which do not affect trade, first went into effect in March and were set to expire on October 21 – but will now continue until at least December 21 and possibly beyond.  

The acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, made the announcement. “We continue to work with our Canadian and Mexican partners to slow the spread of #COVID19. Accordingly, we have agreed to extend the limitation of non-essential travel at our shared land ports of entry through December 21”
