US and Canada won’t open border until July 21

Canada and the United States are extending travel closures until July 21 due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Twitter on June 16.

“I can now confirm that Canada and the United States have again agreed to extend by 30 days – until July 21 – the measures in force on our border,”

Trudeau said.

In accordance with past agreements, the border was to remain closed until June 21.

The restrictions do not apply to freight or air travel, but do affect travel by ferry and rail. Tourist trips are prohibited, while those returning from such a trip will be allowed to cross the border.
