The US-Canada border is set to stay closed until August 21st according to sources familiar with the situation.

CTV News is reporting that "both Canadian and U.S. officials have agreed to keep the border closed to all non-essential travellers for another month."

US President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke on the phone yesterday and discussed the ongoing closure of the border due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The previous order to keep the border closed began in March and the current extension expires on July 21.

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.
