U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have agreed to close the border between the United States and Canada to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The border will be closed to all non-essential traffic, reports CNBC. Ongoing discussions will determine what vehicles and people will still be allowed to travel, according to CNN. The U.S.-Canada border is the longest dividing line between two countries.
President Trump announced the news on Twitter:
We will be, by mutual consent, temporarily closing our Northern Border with Canada to non-essential traffic. Trade will not be affected. Details to follow!
