TORONTO -- Canada and the United States are expected to extend existing border restrictions until November, senior government sources tell CTV News.
Sources tell CTV News the restrictions will remain in place until it is felt that the COVID-19 pandemic is under control.
Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam is urging Canadians to follow physical distancing and other public health guidelines in hopes of halting the trend.
The United States has the highest number of COVID-19 cases and deaths of any country.
The decision to extend the border restrictions was reported the same day the U.S. decided to drop its 10 per cent tariff on aluminum.
