Homeland Security Clarifies Donald Trump's Travel Ban Rules From Europe To US

Earlier tonight (March 11), President Donald Trump addressed the nation about the status of coronavirus in the United States.

During his speech, the President revealed that there is a travel ban from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days.

“Smart action today will prevent the spread of the virus tomorrow,” he shared.

Homeland Security added later that the travel ban did not apply to U.S. citizens or their immediate family members.

The travel suspension applies to 26 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

It bans entry of “all aliens who were physically present” in those countries in the 14 days prior to their scheduled travel to the U.S.

The ban does not apply to the United Kingdom.

The President says that he is trying to calm markets, as more coronavirus cases rise and the economy craters, while also labeling it a “foreign” virus and blamed other countries for their failure to prevent its spread.

“We are marshaling the full power of the federal government and the private sector to protect the American people. This is the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus in modern history.”
