Canada and the USA extended the border closure


Canadian and US officials have agreed to extend the closure of the border between the two countries for non-essential travel for another month. This was announced Friday by Public Safety Minister Bill Blair. Thus, travel restrictions will now be in effect until at least January 21, 2021. The ban was first introduced in March and has been extended every month since then. Both countries are still working to prevent the spread of COVID-19. With this extension, Canada has aligned International travel restrictions with the US land border travel restrictions. This will enable the government to extend both restrictions for the same period of time if required.
