US-Canada Border Closure Extended Again to September 21
In a blow to anyone looking for that quick Labor Day trip across the border, the US-Canada border ban for non-essential travel has been extended to at least September 21.
We are extending the reciprocal restrictions at the Canada-US border for another 30 days, till Sept. 21, 2020. We will continue to do what’s necessary to keep our communities safe.— Bill Blair (@BillBlair) August 14, 2020
So it is official that the summer is shot. The border has been closed since March 21 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it doesn’t appear it will reopen anytime soon.
In fact, a majority of Canadians oppose reopening the borders. With the infections out of control in the US, things have deteriorated to a point where Canadians have been vandalizing vehicles with US license plates, regardless if the vehicles and their occupants are in the country legitimately.
While we are all hopeful we will be able to travel again soon, it appears that we will just have to wait a little longer.
