Mexico will extend land border restrictions with the United States for another month, the country's foreign ministry announced on Twitter Monday.
“The restrictions will be maintained in the same terms in which they have been developed since their implementation on March 21st,” the tweet said. The extension will remain in effect through Nov. 21.
The US Embassy in Mexico confirmed the extension in a statement Monday.
“The ups and downs in the outbreaks and flare-ups of Covid-19 have forced us to extend once again the restrictions on the border crossings,” Edgar Ramírez, attaché of the Department of Homeland Security at the United States Embassy in Mexico, said in the statement.
