Canada and US to partially close borders: Globe and Mail

Agency News

Canada and the United States will announce a deal to partially close their borders on Wednesday, the Globe and Mail reported, citing sources.

As part of this agreement the borders of these countries will be closed for non-essential travel but allow the transfer of medical supplies, food and other goods, the report said.

Canada closed its borders to all foreign nationals except U.S. citizens and permanent residents on Monday. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is under quarantine after his wife, Sophie, tested positive for the respiratory virus, earlier urged people to stay at home and restrict contact with others.
