Canada and the United States have agreed to extend the temporary restriction of all non-essential travel across the Canada-U.S. border amid the COVID-19 pandemic, officials said.

The extension continues until Oct. 21.

“The Government of Canada’s top priority remains the health and safety of Canadians, and this extension will continue to protect people on both sides of the border while ensuring the flow of essential goods and services between our two countries,” Bill Blair, minister of public safety and emergency preparedness, said in a statement.
