The Coronavirus Pandemic has made traveling tough throughout the world. Currently, the American passport isn’t of much use if you’d like to travel to a long list of destinations.
Many Americans are hitting the roads, taking road trips to fulfill their desire for wanderlust.
If you’d like to drive over the border into Canada or Mexico, you’ll now need to wait a bit longer.
Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security’s Acting Secretary Chad Wolf tweeted some very important information.
@DHS_Wolf tweeted, “Based on the success of the existing restrictions and close collaboration with Mexico and Canada, @DHSgov will continue to limit non-essential travel at our land ports of entry with Canada and Mexico until Aug 20.”
Wolf also mentioned, “close collaboration with our neighbors has allowed us to respond to #COVID19 in a North American approach and slow the travel-related spread of the virus,” according to USA Today.
Canadien Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted the news too, mentioning that non-essential travels between Canada and the United States remains restricted. He also mentioned that they agreed to extend the current border measures for another 30 days.
In more positive news, these extended closures don’t affect air travel for people flying between the three countries.
How do you feel about the US borders with Canada and Mexico being closed for an additional 30 days?
