Report: U.S., Canada border closure extended to Aug. 21


Canadian television is reporting that the United States and Canadian governments have agreed to keep the border between the two countries closed to nonessential travel due to the coronavirus pandemic for another month.

CTV News is reporting that the two governments are on the same page to restrict traffic between the two countries until at least Aug. 21.

The ban on nonessential travel was first instituted March 21 and has been extended a month at a time.

The border is currently restricted to traffic considered essential until July 21, but the CTV says it will likely extend to a fifth month.
