Mexico Asks Citizens Overseas To Stay Away For Easter
Mexico has been slow to adopt guidelines put in place around the world to diminish the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. But it has called on its citizens to not travel into the country or out of it. Now it’s urging expatriates to not travel back to Mexico for Easter Sunday.
Enrique Gómez Montiel is the interim consul in Tucson.
"As you know many people don’t even know they have or may have the virus and that’s why we are actually asking people not to travel to Mexico," he said.
Mexico and the U.S. closed the shared border in late March to nonessential travel but that doesn’t apply for example to lawful permanent residents.
