According to the official website of the Tijuana City Council, the municipal president, Arturo González Cruz, met virtually with the new mayor of San Diego, Todd Gloria to discuss plans for economic recovery and the reopening of booths.
According to Mayor González Cruz, Tijuana has been very affected by the arrival of the pandemic, however, the reopening of the entry booths for Mexicans with tourist visas will not happen soon since both presidents agreed that for the protection of public health, the situation will have to remain like it is.
This despite Gloria's past statements in which he recognizes that the border cannot recover economically if the border crossing points are not opened. Nevertheless, both mayors agreed that they will implement joint actions to obtain an economic recovery, although the statement did not specify what measures will be implemented.
For the time being, all crossings will continue to be restricted, unless they are essential or of U.S. citizens. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the next update would be for January 21, but due to the increase in cases of COVID-19 in both regions, it is unlikely that they will lift the restrictions.
