Comments from above article -- border-closure is NOT being enforced. The question is the Federali checkpoint at El Chinero -- they WILL ask for proof of residency (utility bill or F3 thingie)I need to break-in my Jeep rockcrawler with 4.5" short-arm lift. Need a desert "fix" for C19 lockdown blues, like mid July Death Valley trip. See pics..MAN the scenery with Comet Neowise! I bought $60 1 year pass, so I might be going back (esp if Baja 500 Covid19 is a bust, see below). This time with Jeep, instead of BMW 325i (e36). A Hollywood pro-videographer showed up with VW awd SUV, he went to "race track" (20 mi drive thru rough terrain, "moving rocks on lake bed"). We became friends, he texted me back that he got a FLAT! I toyed with idea of trying it in my e36, but decided against it
[ I DID bring e36 to 2015 KOTH (a young guy gave me "thumbs up" saying "slam BMW"), got 15" wheels/tires, lowered tire pressure, went to Backdoor & Chocalate Thunder..thru the soft stuff. Dented fuel lines, & under-tray. Hit a huge rock. WILL NOT do this again!! ]
I went north on 15 fwy past Barstow, this time I could try the whoops there. Then, onto Baker/CA, passed the Dumont dunes (this time, go there & play) on the way to Death Valley Junction. On the way back, I went thru West entrance
[ find that place (Rainbow Canyon)
where USAF jets fly REAL LOW!!
to Trona/Ridgecrest & Red Rock (north of Mojave). This time, I could try some trails
Did SCORE get an exemption for racers? The Fishgistics LIVE show (2 days ago) said something about a special lane for racers. Was that El Chinero Federali checkpoint (Hwy 5/Hwy 3 intersection) or the USA/Mexico border crossing (Calexico)?

The foot boarder crossing in California at San Ysrido is open for Americans wishing to cross. I went no problem 9.8.20 This article reads as if it is closed.

Technically this add is correct based on what the Mexican government said but this has not been enforced in Mexico at all. Crossing on foot or by car you are not checked or turned away if you say you are going to stay in a hotel or visit family or friends. According to this story that kind of travel is not permitted. In reality it's all for show and if anyone wants to enter into Mexico and think that they will turn you away, think again. It's as easy as before the ban started on March 21st to enter Mexico.
