Mexico and the United States have agreed to extend restrictions on travel over their shared land border through July 21, according to announcements from the US ambassador to Mexico and the Mexican Foreign Ministry.
US Ambassador to Mexico Christopher Landau cited in a tweet the “public health situation in the border area” as the reason for extending the restrictions. The Mexican Foreign Ministry said the decision to extend the restrictions followed “a review of the development of the Covid-19 outbreak in Mexico and the US.”
The US-Canada border will also remain closed to most travel until July 21, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday.
The United States’ two land borders have been largely closed since March 21.
