Canada Extends Border Closures Internationally and With the United States Until May 21

Public Safety Minister Bill Blair says Canada’s international and U.S. border restrictions will be in place for another month, at least.

In a statement released Tuesday, Public Safety Minister Blair said that Canadian and U.S. officials have agreed to keep the border between the two countries closed to non-essential travel, as well as the existing restrictions on non-U.S. international travel into Canada will be extended until May 21.

Testing and quarantine requirements for people entering Canada by air, have also been extended until May 21, including the minimum length of stay in quarantine hotels.

On the same day, the U.S. State Department on Tuesday upgraded Canada to “do not travel” status amid rising COVID-19 cases in the country. According to the ministry’s website, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for Canada due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in the country,”.

The CDC states on its website: “Because of the current situation in Canada even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants and should avoid all travel to Canada,”.

According to the Associated Press news agency, 80% of the countries in the world are currently on the US ‘not traveling’ list. “Because of the current situation in  Canada even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants and should avoid all travel to Canada,”
