#BREAKING NEWS: Canada, U.S. agree to extend border closure: source bit.ly/2RMsZJj.
A government source has confirmed Canada and the United States have reached a tentative agreement to extend current border restrictions by another 30 days.
On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said relaxing restrictions at the border was still a long way off after President Donald Trump had signalled he was open to easing them.
The restrictions banning all but essential travel were initially put in place in mid-March, and were set to expire in a few days.
Trudeau has also warned reopening the economy or lifting restrictions too soon could have disastrous results, and undo the work already done to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
