The United States and Canada have agreed to keep their shared border closed for nonessential travel for another 30 days to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the extension during a briefing on Saturday the April 18th in Ottawa. The restrictions on the world’s longest frontier took effect on March 21, while allowing trade and other travel deemed essential to continue. The partial ban was to expire soon, but the United States and Canada have decided it is not safe to allow traffic to fully resume.
Prime Minister Trudeau stated, “This is an important decision and one that will keep people on both sides of the border safe.”
