The Canadian government announced on Friday that it would extend the entry restrictions for most international travelers to September 30 to avoid new coronavirus infections.
“Our government will extend the current restrictions on international travel to Canada by one month until September 30, 2020 to limit the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in our community,” announced Canada Public Safety Minister Bill Blair, on his Twitter account.
He also recalled that Canadian citizens and permanent residents of the country returning to Canada must implement “strict quarantine measures” to avoid the increase in infections. Therefore, everyone who enters the country must go through a 14-day quarantine.
Canada took action against pandemics in March, including a travel ban for travelers. Hence, even though the United States was excluded from this list, non-essential travel to Canada from another country was prohibited.
However, the authorities of the United States, Mexico and Canada extended the access restriction measures at their common borders until next September 21.
