Addressed about the US decision announced on Wednesday once deadline to do so expired at midnight, Marcelo Ebrard referred to Covid-19 rallies and also said that there are still coronavirus cases reported in both countries, but they (USA) made that choice and we respect that.

However, I hope that, given the evidence of vaccinations on both sides we can solve the situation as soon as possible, since they (the U.S.) are living the same as us due to the effects of the border closing.

Ebrard revealed there is a negotiating table to analyze different criteria, and he excused himself from not giving more details so as not to hinder the ongoing talks.

At noon, the US Homeland Security Department announced that Canada and Mexico borders will continue to be closed to non-essential travel for at least one more month.

Canada announced, on the other hand, that fully vaccinated US visitors will be allowed to enter Canada from August 9.
