Mexico City, Mexico — The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) has again proposed an extension on restrictions for non-essential land travel between the two countries. Mexico has asked the United States government to maintain the closure of the border between the two countries until December 21, the above after an analysis of the development of the spread of Covid-19.
On Social media, the agency indicated that the restrictions will be maintained in the terms in which they have been developed since their implementation on March 21.
In their message, the Foreign Ministry stated “After reviewing the development of the spread of COVID19 in both countries, and due to the fact that various states are in the orange epidemiological light, Mexico proposed to the United States the extension for 1 more month of restrictions on non-essential land traffic along their common border.”
They add that “both countries will coordinate health measures in the border region that will be in effect until 11:59 p.m. on December 21, 2020.”
The border is closed to non-essential land traffic, such as tourists or occasional visitors, but allows the passage of goods, workers or students.
