March 11 - President Trump announces suspension of travel from Europe
In response to the ongoing coronavirus situation, on Wednesday evening President Trump announced that travel by foreign nationals to the United States from 26 European countries would be prohibited for 30 days beginning on Friday, March 13 at midnight. The news came on the heels of the announcement by the World Health Organization hours earlier declaring COVID-19 a pandemic. The new restrictions do not apply to the United Kingdom. U.S. citizens traveling in Europe will be exempt, but American travelers will have to undergo screenings before they come back to the U.S. The order also does not prohibit travel by legal permanent residents and the immediate family members of U.S. citizens.
