CHINA, China — The china border crossing is closed for the time being, but a Chinese customs officer is telling travelers they can continue their journey to the US, in spite of a new blockade of the border.
The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) says travelers crossing the border illegally from Canada and the US will have to enter through a new border crossing in northern China.
The agency says travelers entering the US via the Canada-Mexico border will have a green light to travel through the new gate in Chino.
The new border gate, called the China Gate, will open in the early morning hours of Jan. 15, 2020.CBP has been working with the US Customs and Enforcement agency to enforce the new border-crossing regulations, and is expected to issue a more detailed announcement on the new regulations sometime in the coming weeks.
The CBP did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Medical News Online.
The new border control measures were imposed in March after a new wave of border crossings, which began in November.
The border crossing to Canada between Vancouver and Victoria, Canada, is also closed for now.
