US-Canada-Mexico borders to remain closed for another month

The US-Canada border and the US-Mexico border, which has not opened since March due to the spread of coronavirus, will stay closed to non-essential travel until November 21.

U.S. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf  said on Twitter, “We are working closely with Mexico and Canada to identify safe criteria to ease the restrictions in the future and support our border communities.”

Canadian Public Safety Minister Bill Blair also tweeted that the decision was “based on the best public health advice available to keep Canadians safe.” Mexico’s foreign ministry confirmed that the measures will not be changed until Nov. 21.
