Detroit Coronavirus Information

The US-Canadian border will be temporarily closed to nonessential travel as coronavirus continues to spread.

In a press briefing earlier today, Trump told the press that the closure will not have an impact on trade.

“It’s not affecting trade, it’s non-essential crossings,” he said.

The closures are still being planned out, but they are not expected to affect any of the following crossings:

  • deliveries of auto parts and assemblies, which are vital to the two countries’ economic supply chains.
  • movement of trucks, trains or other modes of transportation carrying cargo, supplies or products.
  • people crossing the border for work in either country, including health care workers, truckers and others.

This is a developing story, but we will provide all the details as they develop.  As a border city, this could have an impact on our local community.
