One year on, poll suggests Canadians still deeply wary about allowing U.S. visitors

Canada-U.S. border closure likely extended to Oct. 21: report

TORONTO — Consumer news outlets are reporting that the closure of the Canada-U.S. border will be extended until Oct. 21.

The CBC reports that a source speaking on the condition of anonymity says the border closure, currently set to expire Sept. 21, will be extended for at least another month.

The border has been closed for all but non-essential travel since mid-March and there have already been several extensions.

Back in July one of Canada’s highest-profile medical experts throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Dr. Isaac Bogoch, said he wouldn’t be surprised if the Canada-U.S. border stays closed until into 2021.
