United States, Mexico And Canada Extends The Ban On Non-Essential Travel


The United States, Mexico and Canada will extend the ban on non-essential travel activities across the common border for another 30 days, until June 22, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

According to Reuters , the US, Mexico and Canada on May 19 announced that they would extend the ban on non-essential travel activities across the common border for another 30 days to prevent the spread of the new strain of corona virus that causes COVID-19 .

The US Department of Homeland Security said restrictions on cross-border travel would last until June 22 for both Canada and Mexico. Previously, according to the plan, the regulation will be lifted on May 20.

Travel restrictions do not include the US-Canada cross-border trade of 8,891 km long, a Reuters source said.
According to Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf, the United States will assess the treatment of Canadian and Mexican epidemics. Mr Wolf said non-essential travel activities had been reduced by 60 to 70%, while air travel was not affected.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed the extension decision, emphasizing that this is an "important decision" to ensure the safety of people in the United States and Canada.

Meanwhile, the Mexican State Department has also confirmed the extension of closing the common border with the US.

On the same day, May 19, the United States extended its COVID-19 epidemic prevention measure, which allows for quick deportation of captured migrants on its borders. The above epidemic prevention rules will be extended indefinitely and reviewed by US health officials every 30 days.
