U.S. Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Chad Wolf, said that Both Canadian and Mexican partners had agreed to extend the limitation of travel until September 21. Authorities said that the measure could be extended for more time if necessary to tackle the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The travel ban was first announced on March 18 as a precautionary measure, and it has been prolonged monthly by the three countries. The ban does not include trade or travel by air.
We continue to work with our Canadian and Mexican partners to slow the spread of #COVID19. Accordingly, we have agreed to extend the limitation of non-essential travel at our shared land ports of entry through September 21.
