The Bellingham Herald

Canada and the United States have extended their agreement to keep the border closed to non-essential travel until June 21 during the coronavirus pandemic — the second time the closure has been extended.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the border is a source of vulnerability, so the agreement will be extended by another 30 days. The restrictions were first announced on March 18 and were extended in April and then again on Tuesday, May 19.
