Travel restrictions at U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico likely to be extended


Travel restrictions at the U.S. land borders with Canada and Mexico due to the novel coronavirus pandemic will likely be extended, a U.S. official told Reuters on Wednesday.

The restrictions, which temporarily bar non-essential travel to limit the spread of the virus, initially went into effect in March and are set to expire by May 21.

A Mexican government source said on Tuesday that officials were still discussing the issue, but that an extension for a limited period seemed likely.
