U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico will remain closed to non-essential travel for at least another month.
Bill Blair, Canadian public safety minister, tweeted on Monday, “We are expanding restrictions on non-essential travel to the United States to 21 in November 2020. Our decisions will continue to be based on the best public health advice available to keep Canada safe.”
The United States and Mexico have both looked COVID-19 death rate is much higher than Canada.
Chad Wolf, acting secretary of the US Department of Homeland Security, confirmed the news.
“To continue to limit the spread of COVID, the US, Mexico, and Canada will extend restrictions on non-essential travel through Nov 21,” he tweeted. “We are working with Mexico and Canada to identify the safe criterion to ease restrictions in the future and support our border communities.”
In a Monday interview with a Canadian radio station, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau noted that the country’s southern neighbor does not have the virus under control.
“The situation in the United States continues to be a concern. So we will make sure we keep Canada safe as well as we could,” said global Trudeau News.
“Canadians can be very reassuring to know that the various orders of their government will always work together to keep them safe, unlike some other places that we see throughout the world,” he said.
The border has been closed since March 23.
The US Embassy in Canada explained that the border policy applies to the automotive, commuter train and ferry trips but not air, rail, or sea travel. He also said:
” ‘Non-essential’ travel includes travel that is considered tourism or recreational in nature. ‘Essential travel’ still permitted includes: work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care, and safety and security.”
In addition to border regulations, any additional rules about entering Canadian, United States, and Mexico during the 19th COVID pandemic.
Last month, President Trump said that Canada wants the border to reopen and said that “we will open the border immediately.” But public opinion survey has found Canada to support keeping the border closed.
