US Extends Travel Restrictions to Curb COVID-19 Spread
On Monday, April 20, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security said that the U.S., Canada and Mexico have each agreed to extend restrictions on non-essential travel across their shared land borders. The restrictions which began on March 21, 2020 and were to end by April 20, 2020, have now been extended for an additional 30-day period.
