With almost a week in between Trump putting a hold on traveling to European Countries, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has decided to close its borders to non-citizens.
The COVID-19 panic is still in full swing, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reportedly said on Monday that he will “close the country’s border to anyone not a citizen or a permanent resident amid the coronavirus pandemic.”
Trudeau had to make the announcement from outside his residence, as his wife tested positive for the virus. Trudeau also shared that he will restrict flights to Canada to airports in four major cities.
The report shared by the CBC, as follows:
“He said Monday afternoon that exceptions will be carved out for diplomats and people with family in Canada. He also said U.S. citizens are exempt.
Trudeau said the federal government is mandating that air carriers screen passengers with symptoms of the novel coronavirus out of lineups, so they don’t board planes back to Canada. Additionally, he said that starting Wednesday, international flights will only be allowed to land at four airports: Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal.
“We can still slow the spread of this virus,” Trudeau said from outside his home. He is in self-isolation after his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, tested positive for COVID-19.”
Whether this will effect the trade set up between countries, as well as cause slowdowns at the border, and if the supply and demand issue continues to be an issue with hoarders and doomsday preppers, a lot of things are going to be up in the air moving forward.
