The United States has once again increased border restrictions on unreasonable travel.
The U.S. border with Mexico and Canada will remain closed until August 21, according to documents published in the Federal Register. The previous border restrictions were due to expire on Thursday.
Restrictions on land and ferry travel have been extended to 11:59 pm on August 21 and will remain in place unless notified or amended.
The Department of Homeland Security, in conjunction with Canadian and Mexican partners, closed the U.S. border to travelers on leisure during the COVID-19 epidemic in March 2000. Since then the restrictions have been increased on a monthly basis.
Canada announced Monday that it will reopen its borders to U.S. citizens and permanent residents on August 9, with plans to allow fully vaccinated passengers from any country in September.
People from Canada and Mexico were allowed to enter the United States with a negative coronavirus test or proof of recovery from COVID-19 before any international flight to the United States took effect in January.
Vaccines continue to be available across the three countries, and the incidence of covid has increased with the spread of the dabta virus, in 3% of US covid cases.
