Travel restrictions between Canada and the United States across their shared border will likely remain in place through the end of July, sources in the Canadian and U.S. governments said Tuesday.

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

The story was first reported by the Reuters news agency.

In May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that the border is viewed as a potential vulnerability during the pandemic.

“This will keep people in both of our countries safe.” Trudeau said.

“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 April.
