On March 18, 2020, the governments of the United States and Canada announced they decided to close the border to all nonessential travels between the two countries as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. Supply chain workers, as well as trade and commerce-related travels, will still continue. Earlier, Canada also restricted entry to Canada for all foreigners. In terms of immigration, these measures make it impossible to flagpole at the Port of Entry. IRCC called not to try this in order to validate the PR or get a new Work or Study Permit.
