The U.S. Embassy in Mexico shared this Wednesday a message from Edgar Ramírez, one of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) attachés.

This is because the temporary restrictions on border crossings between Mexico and the U.S. are in effect until November 21, however, there is still uncertainty and confusion among many if they will reopen for tourists around the Christmas season, as discussed in this media website.

For his part, Edgar Ramírez commented the following:

“Due to speculation and proposals from various sources, questions have been raised about the validity of border crossing restrictions. I want to reiterate that because of the pandemic, the restrictions remain in place until at least November 21, and in fact the high incidence of cases gives us little hope of being able to relax the restrictions in the near future. Please watch for further announcements”.

So far, the only thing left is to wait until the situation improves in both countries, since at least in Baja California the accumulated positive cases are 23 thousand 652, while deaths total 4 thousand and 56; and there are still 314 active cases.
