US, Canada and Mexico borders to stay closed for travelers
July 17, 2020
WASHINGTON - The U.S., Canada and Mexico have agreed to keep their shared borders closed to non-essential traffic until at least late August because of COVID-19.
Acting U.S. Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf said Thursday in announcing the extension that restrictions on cross-border traffic that have been in place since March have helped slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Officials had said in recent days that another 30-day extension was likely before the expiration of the previous 30-day extension.
