Americans won’t be able to cross the border into Canada for at least another month as that country’s government waits for the COVID-19 pandemic to be “managed efficiently” in the United States.

Canada will keep the border with the United States closed to non-essential travel until at least Oct. 21, CBC News reports. The closure is set to expire on Sept. 21. There has not yet been an official announcement.

The TV station learned of the upcoming extension from an anonymous source with direct knowledge of the situation. The source said the Canadian government is waiting to reopen the border until there is evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic is being “managed efficiently” in the United States.

Border restrictions were first announced in March and have been extended monthly since then. Truck drivers transporting essential goods like food, healthcare professionals along with other essential travelers are still allowed to cross.
