U.S. Travel Restrictions Extended Through Oct. 21

U.S. travel restrictions at the Canadian border will be extended by another month.

This comes despite an announcement from the White House Monday to allow foreign travelers to fly into the U.S. if they are vaccinated and have a negative covid test. Travel restrictions would have ended Tuesday.

“Today, the administration’s announcing a move safer and more harmonized global approach to international, inbound air travel,” said White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Jeff Zients. “We do not have any updates to the land border policies.”

The extension closes the border to all but essential travel for both Canada and Mexico effective through Oct. 21.
