Canada-U.S. border closure extended until June 21: Trudeau

OTTAWA: The Canada-U.S. land border will remain closed for at least another month in order to curb the spread of COVID-19, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday.

Trudeau took to Twitter to announce that the closure has been extended until June 21.

Non-essential travel restrictions have been in place between the two countries since March 21, 2020. The provision exempts the flow of trade and commerce, as well as vital health-care workers such as nurses who live and work on opposite sides of the border.

As per reports, Canada has vaccinated 46.05 per cent of its population with a first dose and just 3.77 per cent have received two doses. Meanwhile, the U.S. has vaccinated 47.19 per cent of its population with a first dose, and 37.03 per cent have received both shots.
