Travel restrictions to the United States will continue for another month
Until November 21st they will announce if non-essential crossings will be resumed.
A few moments ago, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs communicated, through its social media, that the rise in numbers in both countries and the fact that some states in Mexico have returned to orange, have resulted in the extension for one more month of the restrictions on non-essential land transit at the border.
The restrictions will continue under the same rules that have been implemented since March 21. Those rules will be in effect until November 21, 2020, when it will be reconsidered whether it is safe to return to regular activities.
