Canada-U.S. Border to Remain Closed thru April 21
The closure of the Canada-U.S. border has been extended, yet again, by another 30 days. Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Bill Blair, tweeted out the news this morning.
“Non-essential travel restrictions with the United States have been extended until April 21st, 2021. We will continue to base our decisions on the best public health advice available to keep Canadians safe from COVID-19,” said Blair.
While Canada’s vaccination program is well underway, and vaccination shots in the U.S. are upwards of 2 million per day, the variants have fueled what most are calling a third wave, and much of Canada is still in lockdown or high levels of restrictions.
