US and Canada will not open the border until July 21

Canada and the United States extend the border closure for travel without emergency until July 21 in connection with the new coronavirus pandemic, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted on June 16.

“Now I can confirm that Canada and the United States have again agreed to extend by 30 days – until July 21 – the existing measures on our border,” Trudeau said.

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

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