Biden Reinstates Covid-19 Travel Restrictions On Non-U.S. Travelers
Newly inaugurated President Joe Biden has been making major moves since officially taking office on Jan. 20 and has now turned his attention to travel.
On Monday, the President is expected to reinstate COVID-19 travel restrictions on non-U.S. travelers from Brazil, Ireland, the United Kingdom, as well as 26 other European countries that allow travel across open borders.
South Africa has also been added to the list due to concerns about a variant of the virus detected in the nation. This is according to two White House sources who spoke under the condition of anonymity to the Associated Press. This is the reversal of a Trump-era order to loosen restrictions issued during his final days in office.
The news comes on the heels of last week’s announcement that international air travelers will be required to quarantine upon U.S. arrival and that all incoming passengers aged two and older need to present negative COVID-19 test results within three days before traveling.
