Canada's border with the United States will remain closed for at least another month, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a Facebook post last night.

Trudeau confirmed the country has agreed with the United States to keep the land border between the two nations closed to non-essential travel until at least June 21.

The border has been closed since March 2020. The most recent extension was slated to expire today, May 21.

Earlier this week, Trudeau suggested that three-quarters of Canadians will need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before the border can reopen.

Meanwhile, U.S. officials have lifted mask requirements for those who are fully vaccinated in many states, including Michigan.
