Canada and the U.S. will extend for 30 days the restrictions that closed their shared border to most travelers, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said.
Separately, the White House said President Donald Trump spoke with his Mexican counterpart about the need for continued border restrictions on the southern U.S. frontier.
Canada and the U.S. agreed to close the border to non-essential travelers in March. Saturday’s agreement extends the measures to May 20. It has the same terms as before and allows essential goods and services to move between countries, Trudeau said at a news conference in Ottawa.
