SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Postpone your plans to visit Canada, at least through December 21.
Canadian officials extended a measure which bans non-essential travel between the U.S. and Canada during the coronavirus pandemic.
Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau made the announcement in a tweet Friday morning.
The measure first began on March 21, 2020, and does not impact essential commerce, trade and other types of essential travel.
But it is keeping tourists and people with loved ones from crossing the border for fun and visitations. The measure was originally supposed to last 30 days and has since been extended nearly every month.
With COVID-19 cases rising, officials are making sure a trip across the U.S.-Canada border isn’t in anyone’s Thanksgiving plans — and if the pattern continues, likely Christmas plans as well.
