US / Canada and US / Mexico border closure extended again

17th August 2020 – In no great surprise it was announced in the last few days that the US borders with Canada and Mexico will remain closed until at least September 21st 2020. In all likelihood, this won’t be the last 1-month extension to the original March closure agreements. Canadians are especially keen to keep the door shut, with the dire infection rate in the US causing concern on both sides of the border.

Travel deemed as essential, including trucking, health worker travel and airline crew movement will still be permitted.
