CALEXICO – Mexicali will again deploy checkpoints to screen travelers into the city starting at 2 p.m. today and extending into 8 p.m. Sunday at both Calexico ports of entry and at Algodones.

The emergency action is being taken as a precautionary measure to help combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and follows a similar three-day action the city took last weekend.
