Ottawa, Canada (CNN) — Calling the border with the United States a clear point of "vulnerability" for Canada in terms of Covid-19 infections, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Tuesday that by mutual agreement, the border will remain closed to nonessential travel until at least June

Nonessential travel was first restricted across the borders in March as the coronavirus outbreak began to hit the U . S . The three countries have since extended the border restrictions, which were previously set to be lifted on Sunday in 30-day intervals. America is changing FASTER THAN EVER.

Americans traveling to or from Alaska are also allowed to drive through Canada, but must display a “hang-tag” during their trip and can only pass through certain border crossings, according to the Canada Border Services Agency.

There have been several instances of people flouting those rules, including one American tourist who violated the country’s travel restrictions at least twice in June to visit Banff National Park while traveling from Alaska. To combat people taking advantage of the Alaska loophole, Canadians started reporting U.S. license plates they spotted.

In addition, while the U.S. reopened enrollment centers for its Global Entry program earlier this month, it continued to suspend interviews for NEXUS and the U.S.-Canada FAST programs in light of the land border closures.

In total, Canada has recorded more than 145,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to Johns Hopkins University. In recent weeks, however, the country has seen case numbers tick upwards, reporting 401 new cases in Ontario on Friday, the largest province, according to The Associated Press.

The U.S. has reported more than 6.8 million confirmed cases, the most in the world. Mexico has reported more than 697,600 confirmed cases.
