US Extends Border Restrictions for Canadians Another 30 Days

By Casey August 22, 2021 (Updated August 24, 2021) 1 min. read

The United States Department of Homeland Security has made the decision to extend US border restrictions until September 21st, 2021 due to the increase in cases of the COVID-19 delta variant.

These restrictions have been extended every month since March of 2020, when DHS and its Canadian and Mexican colleagues restricted the borders to leisure tourists in order to minimize the spread of coronavirus.

The order’s extension has no effect on the ability of US citizens currently in Canada to cross the border into the US.

When asked about the U.S. land border closure on the campaign trail, Canadian Leader Justin Trudeau said the two countries are coordinating closely, but pointed out that the border orders issued by Canada and the U.S. have been nonsimultaneous from the start.

On Friday, the US Department of Homeland Security tweeted “In coordination with public health and medical experts, DHS continues working closely with its partners across the United States and internationally to determine how to safely and sustainably resume normal travel.”
