Many crossing the border to celebrate Thanksgiving – KRGV

Families are coming together for Thanksgiving after spending the last holiday season apart.

The border first closed back in March 2020 due to Covid, leaving a lot of people with family in Mexico who couldn’t be together for the holidays last year. 

Ports of entry reopened earlier this month to non-essential travelers that have been vaccinated — and just in time for Thanksgiving. 

Those crossing are expected to verbally attest that they’re vaccinated for COVID-19 and provide documented proof upon request.
