The United States, Mexico and Canada are extending restrictions on non-essential travel across their shared borders for an additional 30 days, Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said in a tweet.

“As President Trump stated last week, border control, travel restrictions, and other limitations remain critical to slowing the spread of coronavirus and allowing the phased opening of the country,” Wolf wrote.
