NIAGARA FALLS – The border crossing between the United States and Canada will remain closed to non-essential travel for at least another month.
That’s according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security who says the closure continues through March 21.
Officials cite ongoing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The extended restrictions affect land borders in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
President Biden is scheduled to meet virtually with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday, where the two will speak on “mutual areas of interest” including the COVID-19 response.
