Northern Border Closed to Non-Essential Traffic

Mutual agreement with Canada

On Wednesday, President Trump announced that the U.S. and Canada are temporarily closing their shared border to non-essential traffic as part of the effort to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Trade will not be affected,” the president said, promising details to follow.

The closure was done by mutual consent of both nations.

Plans for the U.S. border with Mexico remain in development. The Department of Homeland Security is considering a plan that would turn away asylum seekers and anyone who crossed into the U.S. illegally.
