The Ministry of Foreign Relations (SRE) announced that the governments of Mexico and the United States extended the restrictions on non-essential land traffic on their common border for an additional 30 days, due to the continued spread of COVID-19 in both countries.
These measures were imposed in mid-March by the authorities of both countries and renewed in May, when the first term set for the closure of the 3,000 kilometers of the Mexican-American border was to expire.
The two nations “have agreed to extend restrictions on non-essential land traffic on their common border for another 30-days, after reviewing the development of the spread of COVID-19 in Mexico and the United States,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.
“The restrictions will remain in the same terms in which they have been developed since their implementation on March 21. Both countries will continue to coordinate sanitary conditions in the border region. The measures will be in force until July 21, 2020 ”, he added.
