Here is some information regarding travel to the countries we serve in. We will keep this information up to date as needed.
According to the El Paso Stay Home & Work Safe Directive released on 3.24.20, Section 6 d. states that “individuals may leave their residence to provide any services or perform any work necessary to the operations and maintenance of ‘Critical Infrastructure'”. The mayors of both El Paso and Juárez agreed that the two cities are considered “one community”, in which our work in Juárez would qualify. Therefore, US citizens may cross into and from Mexico at any time for the work that we do. Masks are required in public in Juárez. Temperatures are taken at the border crossing into Mexico.
The border crossing is open to US citizens. In both Del Rio and Acuña, there are currently shelter in place restrictions. However, Casas has been deemed “Essential Personnel” since we provide shelter for those in need.
The State of Emergency, which includes closure of the airport, is in effect until at least September 5th. There is a shelter-in-place rule in effect with a curfew of 9 pm – 4 am every day.
