Canada-Mexico border closure order extended for another month
Due to COVID-19
May 20, 2020
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced they are amending and extending the public health order from March 20th that temporarily closed the U.S. border between Canada and Mexico for people coming into the U.S.
The order states that the "introduction of aliens, regardless of their country of origin, migrating through Canada and Mexico into the United States creates a serious danger of the introduction of COVID-19 into the United States, and the danger is so increased by the introduction of such aliens that a temporary suspension is necessary to protect the public health."
This amendment and extension goes into effect at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on May 21, 2020 and is in effect until the CDC Director determines that the danger of further introduction of COVID-19 into the United States from covered aliens has ceased to be a serious danger to the public health, and the Order is no longer necessary to protect the public health.
The CDC will review the latest information regarding the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated public health risks every thirty days to ensure that the Order remains necessary to protect the public health.
