Canada has said it will continue to keep its US border closed for another 30 days, citing America's handling of the COVID-19 crisis as the reason.

"We recognize that the situation continues to be complex in the United States in regards to COVID-19," Trudeau said on Monday. "Every month, we have been able to extend the border closures to all but essential goods and services and those discussions are ongoing."

The ban on US travel has been in place since March 21.

Canada joins with the European Union in banning incoming travel from the USA.
