Travel restrictions between Canada, Mexico, and the United States across their shared borders will remain in place for another 30 days, officials of the three countries said Monday.

The restrictions were put into place on March 21 amidst the coronavirus outbreak.

The Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Affairs confirmed the agreement on Monday in a tweet, saying it had been reached “after reviewing the development of COVID-19 propagation in Mexico and that country,” referring to the United States.

The extension was expected following a comment on Saturday by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that the extensions would continue.

“Border control, travel restrictions, and other limitations remain critical to slowing the spread and allowing the phased opening of the country,” said acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf.
