US-Canada Border to Remain Closed Until Late July

US-Canada Border to Remain Closed Until Late July

Canada and the United States are expected to extend a ban on non-essential travel until late July. Both countries are still trying to control the spread of the coronavirus. The information comes from sources cited by Reuters, but no official statement has been published yet.

The two countries introduced month-long restrictions in March and renewed the ban in April and May. The ban is currently set to expire on June 21. It is now expected to be extended once again, until July 21.

Travel restrictions still do not apply to healthcare workers, trade and people going to and from work. Canadian border officials now started admitting immediate family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents from the United States. However, these travelers will be required to observe a 14-day quarantine. For Canadians trying to enter the US, there’s apparently a loophole. You can not cross the border by car, train, ferry and boat, but you can fly.

Canada currently has 97,894 cases and 8,048 confirmed deaths attributed to the virus. New cases have been on a decline since earlier this month. The United States has 2.07M cases so far and 116K deaths. New cases are also on a decline in the states since mid April.
