The border between Canada and the United States will remain closed to non-essential travel for at least another month.
Public Safety Minister Bill Blair tweeted this afternoon that the closure has been extended until at least April 21.

Previously, it was extended on Feb. 21 until March 21.
The border has remained open for essential travel throughout the pandemic in a bid to avoid disrupting the flow of food, medical supplies and other crucial goods between the two countries.
