Higgins: US-Canada border will remain closed through October 21

Canada

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Rep. Brian Higgins says the Department of Homeland Security has confirmed that the US-Canada border will remain closed through October 21.

The border has been closed for six months because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Higgins has repeatedly called for an agreement to partially or fully reopen the border, but it doesn’t appear to be happening anytime soon.

The way it stands now, commercial business and trade may be conducted between the two countries, but tourism for Americans is off the table.
