  • Ciudad Acuña and Piedras Negras: Mexican authorities are performing temperature checks and health inspections at the international ports of entry. Southbound U.S. citizen travelers who display symptoms of COVID-19 or who decline to have their temperature checked may be denied entry. In addition, in accordance with the U.S.-Mexico Joint Initiative to Combat the COVID-19 Pandemic, authorities may deny entry to Mexico by U.S. citizens if they do not demonstrate residence in Mexico and cannot prove they have an essential reason for travel. Travelers should check directly with Customs and Border Protection (https://bwt.cbp.gov/) for the most updated information for border crossings, including operational hours of the international bridges. National and international bus travel continues with reduced schedules. State and municipal offices have reduced operating hours and have implemented sanitary measures.
