In a press conference at the National Palace, the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon, commented that although communication with the United States is being maintained, there are no plans to lift the restrictions on the northern border from one month to the other.

This is how he responded after being questioned about the possibility of reopening this border, in view of the progress of the vaccination campaign in Baja California, one of the states bordering this country.

However, he said that "what we are going to do is to review the activities according to the evolution of the pandemic and the vaccination on the Mexican side", in order to try to reduce the "economic impact as soon as possible", he added.

It should be recalled that since March 2020 this border has only allowed people to cross into the United States with essential travel, while Mexico began its restrictions until March 18, but only on its southern border, with the aim of mitigating the COVID-19 infections.

For its part, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of the United States recently stated that despite having initiated vaccination in both countries, the guard against COVID-19 should not be lowered, so the restrictions on this border will be in force, for the time being, until April 21, 2021.
