Trudeau says Canada – U.S. border to remain closed for another month


OTTAWA, ON., May 19, 2020 — Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the Canadian border will continued to remain closed for non-essential travel to and from the United States for an additional 30 days.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announces from Rideau Cottage in Ottawa, that the border closure between Canada and the United States will be extended for another month.

Canada’s Prime Minister kicked off his usual daily press conference in front of Rideau Cottage with the news that the two countries agreed they should continue to keep the borders closed to non-essential travel.

“This is an important decision that will keep people in both of our countries safe,” said Trudeau

The agreement to temporarily close the borders to non-essential travel for 30 days was initially established in March then extended in April to May 21.

This means the borders are only open to commercial traffic and essential workers crossing back and forth for work. Recreational, vacation type visits are still not allowed and the decision on international visits will be assessed on a week to week basis.

This announcement comes on the heals of Doug Ford announcing that Ontario is extending its emergency orders to May 29th as well as continuing its Phase 1 of easing some restrictions as part of its framework to reopen the province.
