Mexico restricts non-essential travel for first time

Mexico announced it is restricting non-essential travel at land ports of entry, mirroring for the first time restrictions applied by the U.S. government for the past year.

The announcement on Thursday came in a Twitter post by Mexico’s Secretary of Foreign Relations, or SRE. After one year without restricting entry at land ports of entry, the SRE said:

“To prevent the spread of COVID-19, (Mexico) will impose restrictions starting March 19, 2021, on land transit for non-essential activities at the northern and southern borders.”
