OTTAWA, Ont. – Truck arrivals have returned to normal for the first time since Covid-19 struck four months ago, the Canada Border Services Agency said Tuesday.

It said 87,549 truck drivers entered the country during the week of June 29-July 5, compared to 87,550 in the same period in 2019.

“The numbers
show there was no difference in truck drivers entering Canada compared to the
same week last year,” the agency said.

Truck arrivals
have continued to improve since May, when businesses and factories started
reopening in both Canada and the U.S.

Overall
volumes during the week of June 29-July 5 were down 91% for those crossing via
land, and 95% through airports compared to the same time a year ago, the CBSA
said.

Canada and
the U.S. have agreed to keep the border closed to all non-essential travel
until July 21 to slow the spread of Covid-19.

The
restrictions, first introduced in late March, are not applicable to commercial
vehicles.
