Air Canada, the responsible airline has apologized to the passenger after it denied her access to fly to Cleveland last month to visit her terminally ill husband.

The airline mentioned that the misunderstanding arose from a misinterpretation of the complex border restrictions that have been implemented since mid March when the cases of COVID-19 increased.

All this is to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Canada-U.S. land border is closed to non-essential traffic on both sides of the border until at least July 21. However, Canadians can still enter the U.S. by plane.
