The United States Government is expected to extend restrictions on non-essential travel into the country.
The existing restrictions set forth more than a month ago are up to expire tomorrow. But are likely to be extended as Government officials have called it a vulnerable spot for COVID-19 Virus infections.
Locally, Maverick County is at 89 positive cases of COVID-19 with one death.
On a daily basis, many people are getting tested. And for several consecutive days we have had more than ten new cases reported, daily.
The economic impact of shutting down border crossings to non-essential travel has hit local businesses hard.
The City of Eagle Pass has also lost a great amount of revenues in the past two months from the decease of border crossings.
The City depends on approximately 50,% of its yearly budget from bridge revenues, which are not coming in at this time.
Bridge crossing restrictions are expected to go all the way to June 21.
