Canada and the United States have both agreed to restrict temporarily non-essential travels across the borders of both countries.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau disclosed this today in Ottawa as part of efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
“In both countries we are encouraging our peoples to stay home.
“We are telling our citizens not to visit their neighbors if they don’t absolutely have to.
“This collaborative and reciprocal measure is an extension of that prudent approach,” said Trudeau.
“I want to be clear though that essential travel will continue. Our governments recognized that it s critical that we preserve the supply chains between both countries,” said the prime minister.
The supply chains will ensure that food, fuel and life-saving medicine reach people on both sides of the border
Supply chains including trucking would not be affected by the new measure.
