Is the extended border closure date

Blair tweeted that the restrictions for non-essential travel between Canada and the U.S. have been extended until October 21.

"We will continue to base our decisions on the best public health advice available to keep Canadians safe," he said.

There have been reports from government sources that the closure will continue until November.

Non-essential travel between the two countries has been banned since March.

This latest extension means we're going into our seventh month without the border being open.
