Last Friday, the U.S. and Mexico decided to restrict travel across the shared border due to COVID-19 concerns. DHS clarified that cargo and trade would continue, and health care workers would still be able to cross between the two countries. A spokesperson for Mexico also clarified that those with existing permission to enter Mexico, such as to visit family or go to work, will still be allowed to cross. The border “shutdown” began Saturday morning.
