Movement of goods across Canada/U.S. border to continue, despite border closure to nonessential travel during Covid-19
March 18, 2020
Dear valued client(s):
The governments of the U.S. and Canada have now implemented additional restrictions at the Canada/U.S. border.
Both countries have agreed to restrict non-essential travel across the border, in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
"We will be, by mutual consent, temporarily closing our Northern Border with Canada to non-essential traffic. Trade will not be affected," tweeted U.S. President Donald Trump Wednesday morning (March18th).
Soon afterwards, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held a news conference where he said travellers will no longer be able to cross the border for recreational and tourism purposes.
The U.S. and Canada were working to finalize a deal last night and into this morning.
Farrow will continue to monitor announcements from both governments, and provide regular updates.
Thank you for your continued support as we all work together to manage our way through these uncharted waters.
