NIAGARA FALLS – Non-essential travel with Canada and Mexico is now restricted until September 21.

The Department of Homeland Security extended the restrictions Friday, citing the Coronavirus delta variant.

The U.S. has limited non-essential travel since the COVID-19 pandemic started.

Restrictions don’t apply to cross-border trade, U.S. Citizens, lawful permanent residents, and people traveling for medical purposes or to attend school.

On the flip side, as of last week, fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents in the U.S. are allowed to travel into Canada.
