In Vancouver, British Columbia as well as across North America, The border between Canada and the United States has been closed to non-essential traffic.

This major decision made by Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S President Donald Trump, has come as a necessary measure for the two countries.

Every effort has been put in place to make sure the coronavirus is not transmitted back and forth across the border.

Social distancing has been strongly suggested for everyone, to remain at least one meter ( 3 feet) from each other.

Staying home unless absolutely necessary is also suggested.

There are many statistics as we have all seen, which are quite frightening.

The Canada U.S border is the worlds longest border between two countries.

Merely a few days prior, the roadways were busy with vehicles travelling both North and South across these friendly borders.

Many travellers from the South head to the town called Whistler which is a world famous ski resort area, this will no longer be possible until this closure is lifted.

From the North as mentioned, travellers head South to take advantage of lower cost fuel and household items and groceries.

For the time being, we all need to stay safe, and look after our families.

This coronavirus will be beaten.
