Canada will be shutting its border to non-Canadian citizens, with the exception of permanent residents, their immediate families, diplomats and U.S. citizens, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday afternoon.

Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 will not be able to enter Canada.

Trudeau addressed Canadians from self-isolation at his home, called Rideau Cottage, where he is in self-isolation, after his wife Sophie tested positive for coronavirus after returning from the U.K.

“We can still slow the spread of this virus,” Trudeau said. “It is time to take every precaution to keep people safe.”
