Travel restrictions between Canada, Mexico, and the United States across their shared borders will likely remain in place through the end of September, the acting secretary of Homeland Security said.

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

“We continue to work with our Canadian and Mexican partners to slow the spread of #Covid19,” said Acting Secretary Chad Wolf.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a tweet that the countries were “taking this step to keep people in both our countries safe – because your health and safety is always our top priority.”
