As both countries slowly begin to reopen, the Canada-U.S. border will remain closed to non-essential travelers for another month. Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau made the announcement Canada will keep its border with the U.S. closed to non-essential travel for another thirty days until June 21st.
“To date, there have been more than 74,000 COVID-19 cases in Canada, while the U.S. currently has more than 1.5 million cases,” Trudeau said.
Although the border may stay closed to travelers beyond the 21st of June, the risk of international travel is being assessed on a day-by-day basis.
Currently, the CDC recommends travelers avoid China, Iran, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and most European countries.
