Travel restrictions between Canada and the United States across their shared border will likely remain in place through the end of August, senior Canadian government officials said Tuesday.

The restrictions on the Canadian border were put into place on March 21 amidst the coronavirus outbreak and extended in April, May, and June.  They are currently slated to end on August 21.

The story was first reported by the Reuters news agency.

The extension follows a phone call between U.S President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Canadians in particular are in favor of the closure, given the relatively low rate of coronavirus infections in the country, versus the dramatic spike of cases in the United States.
