Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Bill Blair announced that restrictions at the Canada-US border will remain in place until at least September 21.
Blair tweeted the announcement of Friday morning, saying that Canada "will continue to do what's necessary to keep our communities safe."
The last extension came last month, on July 14. It was announced that "both Canadian and U.S. officials have agreed to keep the border closed to all non-essential travellers for another month."
Canadian residents, and Canadian citizen's immediate family members, are still allowed to enter the country, along with air crews and diplomats. Anyone with coronavirus symptoms will be unable to enter the country.
Global Affairs Canada is still advising Canadians to avoid unnecessary travel to other nations. Non-essential workers coming into Canada are still required to self-isolate for 14 days.
