US extends non-essential travel restrictions with Canada, Mexico

first_imgMexico’s foreign ministry said in a tweet on Tuesday that the travel restrictions across the country’s border with the United States would continue for 30 days.The United States said it was in “close contact” with both countries on its northern and southern borders about the restrictions, which were first imposed in mid-March. The Trump administration had already extended indefinitely a separate set of pandemic-related rules that permit rapid deportation of migrants caught at US borders.Separately, the US Department of Justice on Tuesday said in a statement it was again postponing hearings for thousands of migrants who have been waiting in Mexico for US immigration court hearings.The Justice Department, which runs the immigration court system, said the hearings for those in the so-called Migrant Protection Protocols program would be on hold until July 20.”This will alleviate the need for travel within Mexico to a US port of entry while pandemic conditions in Mexico remain severe,” the Justice Department said. The controversial program has stranded migrants – many of them seeking asylum in the United States – in Mexico for months.Hundreds have been living in squalid tent camps near the US-Mexico border, which health experts and immigration advocates have said leaves them vulnerable to coronavirus infections. The Trump administration said on Tuesday it would extend existing restrictions on non-essential travel at land ports of entry with Canada and Mexico due to continued risks from the novel coronavirus pandemic.”This extension protects Americans while keeping essential trade and travel flowing as we reopen the American economy,” US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Acting Secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement, without specifying an end date to the extension.The travel restrictions had already been extended several times and were set to expire on June 23, according to a related US government notice. A DHS official said the latest extension would run for 30 days. Topics :last_img read more

Ronaldo enters 14-day quarantine after returning to Juventus

first_imgCRISTIANO Ronaldo will be placed in quarantine for two weeks after the Juventus star returned to Turin.The Portuguese attacker spent almost two months in his native Madeira as the coronavirus pandemic struck Italy, forcing the country into lockdown.Ronaldo was expected back on May 18, when clubs were initially scheduled to return to training.The Italian government moved that date forward to May 4 after many regions gave permission for training centres to open again, prompting Juventus to recall the foreign players who had left the country as the Covid-19 situation grew worse.The players coming back will have to undergo two weeks of quarantine upon their arrival in Italy before they can begin training again.While Ronaldo, 35, and his family were on the way back to Turin, many of his team-mates were being tested for coronavirus at the Juventus Training Centre.Aaron Ramsey, Federico Bernardeschi, Juan Cuadrado, Carlo Pinsoglio and Merih Demiral, who is recovering from injury, were all examined.As of Tuesday, training will resume but players will have to work on their own to abide by social distancing rules.Although all 20 Serie A clubs voted to get the season underway again whenever it is safe to return and are now easing their way back to training, it remains unknown when football will be played again.Despite the government’s decision to lift restrictions on athletes of team sports returning to training, the nation’s Sports Minister, Vincenzo Spadafora, said there is “no way” football can return soon.Although there have been fears that the government could ban some sports for several months, Italian Football Federation (FIGC) president Gabriele Gravina has warned that such a move “would be the death of Italian football”, while Lazio sporting director Igli Tare said clubs are willing to wait several months before resuming the season.“I heard that the order could come from the Minister of Sport this week,” he said. “But that would not be within his remit. FIFA, UEFA and FIGC have explained that the leagues must be finished within the calendar year.“If we don’t start the league again in June, we will do it when it’s possible.”( read more

Users can tap on the home screen to read further or simply swipe to the next article.Google claims the format, which it is opening up to software developers, gives “novel ways to tell immersive stories” without the “prohibitively high start-up costs, particularly for small publishers”. It was developed with major US media outlets and can also be read on a computer, although its promoters said the immersive effect is better on mobiles.”AMP stories aim to make the production of stories as easy as possible from a technical perspective,” Google said.”The mobile web is great for distributing and sharing content, but mastering performance can be tricky,” it added.But AMP Stories give “gives great editorial freedom to content creators,” it claimed.Snapchat, Instagram and particularly Facebook have all heavily used their own stories formats for full-screen displays of content.Google said it eventually plans to bring “AMP stories to more products across Google, and expand the ways they appear in Google Search.” This document is subject to copyright.
