(AP) — Canada and the US have agreed to extend their agreement to keep their border closed to non-essential travel to July 21 during the coronavirus pandemic.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday’s agreement extends the closure by another 30 days.

The restrictions were announced on March 18 and were extended in April and May. They do not apply to air, freight rail, or sea travel between the U.S. and Canada.

Americans who are returning to the U.S. and Canadians who are returning to Canada are exempted from the border closure. Anyone who enters Canada will have to stay in the country for at least 15 days.
