Canada-U.S. border closure to be extended again
The Canada-U.S. border closure will be extended until late July, according to three sources that spoke with Global News.
The border closed to all non-essential travel in March, and the travel ban has been extended twice, in April and May. The border was set to reopen on June 21, but it seems that the closure will again be extended by another month until late July.
The U.S. source told Global News that the decision has yet to be finalized, but that a further extension is highly likely and that it will be "a clean rollover."
The border has always been open to trade, and it has recently opened to some family members of Canadian citizens or residents.

The United States continues to struggle to control the spread of COVID-19, reporting close to 2 million cases and more than 110,000 deaths as of Tuesday.
In a recent survey, 68 per cent of Canadians said that they want the Canada-U.S. border to remain closed until at least September.
