(WXYZ) — The U.S. border with Canada and Mexico will remain closed to non-essential through July 21, the Department of Homeland Security announced on Monday.

According to DHS, the White House is working with groups in Canada and Mexico to identify conditions to ease restrictions.

The border has been closed to non-essential travel since March 2020 and while vaccine rates in the U.S. are high, the percentage of those in Canada who are fully vaccinated is lower.
