The U.S. and Mexico have extended non-essential land travel restrictions through Aug. 21, the Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday.
The restrictions apply to those who travel on foot or vehicles, ferries, rail or to coastal ports of entry, as well as immigrants and non-immigrants traveling for purposes that U.S. authorities do not consider essential. Restrictions don’t apply to commercial air or sea travel. U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents (LPR) are allowed to return to the United States during this period.
The renewed restrictions go into effect at 12 a.m. EDT Thursday, and will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. EDT on Aug. 21, 2021. The restriction could be amended or rescinded prior to that time, the agency said.
