BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The U.S.-Canadian Border will likely remain closed until at least November.

CTV-Toronto reports that a government official says the closure is due to be extended again on September 21, meaning non-essential travel by land is off-limits.

Flights into Canada are reportedly still allowed but travelers are required to quarantine for two weeks upon arrival.

The ban first went into place in March as COVID-19 closures began taking effect in both countries. It has been extended each month throughout the summer.
