Trump expands travel ban to UK, Ireland over coronavirus concerns



 

The restrictions, which take effect Monday night at midnight, don’t apply to American travelers returning to the U.S., Vice President Pence said during a White House briefing on Saturday.

 

“They’ve had a little bit of activity, unfortunately,” Trump told reporters at the briefing, referring to the U.K. and Ireland.

 

Trump earlier this week announced restrictions on travelers from dozens of other European countries, with that ban taking effect Friday night at midnight. Trump also said his administration is considering domestic travel restrictions.

 

“If you don’t have to travel, I wouldn’t do it. We want this thing to end. We don’t want a lot of people getting infected.”

Pence noted that in “countries where we have suspended travel … Americans may still return to the United States, legal residents may still return” and undergo temporary quarantine.
