U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued notices extending temporary restrictions on travel of individuals from Canada and Mexico into the United States along land ports of entry at the border. Such travel is limited to “essential travel,” as defined in the notice, effective through October 21, 2020.

CBP said the restrictions were necessary to lower the risk of transmission and spread of the virus associated with COVID-19.
