Canada on Friday extended restrictions on non-essential international travel including the United States.
Bill Blair, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, said Canada is extending restrictions on non-essential international travel, considering the number one priority of fighting COVID-19 and keeping Canadians safe.
According to Blair, Canada extended the restrictions in coordination with the United States and the travel between the two countries will be restricted until 21st of July.
“As we have said, the government is planning measures for fully vaccinated Canadians, Permanent Residents, and others who are currently permitted to enter Canada and will provide further details on Monday, June 21,” he added.
Canada and United States closed the border in March 2020, just at the beginning of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
