The US borders with Canada and Mexico will remain closed through February 21 after the Department of Homeland Security announced they would be extending the closure for another month due to rising COVID cases.
“In order to continue to prevent the spread of #COVID, the US, Mexico, Canada will extend the restrictions on non-essential travel through Feb. 21,” the DHS announced via Twitter. “We are working closely with Mexico & Canada to keep essential trade & travel open while also protecting our citizens from the virus.”

According to USA Today, the United States, Canada, and Mexico all agreed to close their borders on March 21, 2020, to all but essential traffic and have extended the closures one month at a time since.
