The governments of Canada and the U.S. made it official Tuesday that their 5,525-mile border will remain closed to all nonessential travel until at least July 21 as efforts continue to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The unprecedented border closure, in effect since March 21, prevents all personal travel except for people who work across the border. Commerce, such as trucks and trains, continues to move across the border.

Until Tuesday's announcement, the border had been scheduled to reopen June 21.
