US Borders With Mexico, Canada to Stay Closed, Except for Essential Traffic

Officials in Washington, Ottawa and Mexico City say the border closings to nonessential travel between the U.S. and its northern and southern neighbors will remain in place for at least another month. The borders have been closed to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

However, as has been the case since March, when the borders were closed, trucking is considered an essential business, and they will stay open so economic activity can continue.

On June 16, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the 5,525-mile U.S.-Canada border would remain closed to nonessential travel until July 21.
