Travel restrictions between Canada, Mexico, and the United States across their shared borders will remain in place for another 30 days, officials of the three countries said.

The restrictions were put into place on March 21 amidst the coronavirus outbreak, and continued several times hence.

“This is a decision that will protect people on both sides of the border as we continue to fight COVID-19,” said Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.

The restrictions for non-essential traffic will continue through at least July 21.

“Border control, travel restrictions, and other limitations remain critical to slowing the spread and allowing the phased opening of the country,” said acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf in the spring.
