During his Tuesday morning press conference, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the ban on non-essential travel between Canada and the US has been extended. This marks the second time that the border shutdown has been extended.

And the new date set is another month out, on June 21st. Even though Canada and the US are both in the slow process of reopening, the underlying idea is to keep vulnerable people in both countries safe.

However, like with the previous deal, the border is open for essential travel. That means that goods can still cross the border, and essential workers who live in Canada but work in the US are good too. Or vice versa. Nurses are a good example of that.

Hopefully, in another 30 days, both countries will have gotten things under control. Otherwise, we could see this ban being continuously extended over the summer.
