The Canada-US border will close to non-essential travel starting tonight

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today that the US-Canada border will be closed to all non-essential traffic beginning at midnight tonight.

Trudeau said the United States and Canada have agreed to restrict non-essential travel between the two nations in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

He also said that the U.S. and Canada had come to a reciprocal agreement to return irregular migrant workers who attempt to cross the border to their respective countries.

The two countries have agreed to continue trade and keep up the flow of key supplies while those performing essential work will still be able to cross the border.
