Report: COVID-19 Travel Restrictions Could Cost Border Counties $4.9B


A recent report from Rice University estimates that COVID-19 travel restrictions between the U.S. and Mexico could cost Texas border counties billions of dollars.

The report from the university’s Baker Institute says the eight months the restrictions have been in place have cost those counties nearly five-billion-dollars in gross domestic product.

The report’s author says the restriction in border mobility could lead to a loss of more than 240-million-dollars in state tax revenue.
