Those government sources said that the restrictions put in place earlier in the year will remain until it feels like the COVID-19 pandemic is under control in both countries.

That will mark six months since the border was first closed to non-essential travel on March 21.

CBC News has reported that it will stay closed until October 21 but there's a big possibility that it will be much longer than that.
