WKBW is reporting that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has officially extended the Coronavirus related border closure until at least November 21st.

Citing the high COVID-19 infection rate for Americans and the need for additional security concerns for Canadian citizens, this closure restricts non-essential travel into Canada.

Canada has some very comprehensive and strict travel rules under the Quarantine Act of 2005 which, among other things, requires submitting a self-quarantine plan upon entering the country. Not following those rules could result in monetary fines and jail time.

An individual could face fines of up to $750,000 and up to 6 months in prison where charges are laid for an offence under the Quarantine Act. Willfully or recklessly contravening the Quarantine Act could also result in fines of up to $1 million and 3 years’ imprisonment.

Travel into Canada is still allowed for Essential Reasons, for Citizens of Candana (plus those with dual-citizenship), and for commercial reasons like trade.

The emergency orders under the Quarantine Act do not allow people to travel to Canada for optional or discretionary reasons, such as for tourism, recreation or entertainment.
