Mexico's Secretary of Foreign Relations said that Mexico has requested the US-Mexico land border agreement be extended until Oct. 21 due to COVID-19.

In a series of tweets, the agency asked that the "restrictions on non-essential land traffic" be extended for another month.

"After reviewing the development of the spread of # COVID19, Flag of Mexico proposed to Flag of United States the extension, for one more month, of the restrictions on non-essential land traffic on their common border."

The agreement has been in place since March 21.

Canada's land border to the US will reportedly remain closed until November.
