Canada's top doctor: Approach U.S. border reopening with 'extreme caution'

OTTAWA — Canada’s top public health officer is warning that any decision to reopen the country’s international border — including with the United States — must be taken with “extreme caution.”

Dr. Theresa Tam provided the assessment Tuesday when asked for her scientific advice to the Trudeau government as it examines bilateral restrictions on nonessential travel at the U.S. frontier.

Tam said that before allowing more people to cross Canada’s international border, lawmakers must, among other things, keep track of where other countries are in their fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Of course, the United States being one country that still has cases and is still trying to manage outbreaks … they present a risk to Canada from that perspective,” she told reporters in Ottawa. “So, we have to take that into account.”
