Reacting to the novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan City in Central China, the Trump Administration has issued a proclamation prohibiting anyone from entering the United States who has been physically present anywhere in China within 14 days of seeking US entry. The prohibition has no fixed end date, but is to be reviewed every 15 days by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
The prohibition does not apply to US citizens or lawful permanent residents, their spouses, or their minor children. If the citizen or permanent resident is a child under age 21, the prohibition does not apply to the child’s parents, guardians, or minor siblings. It also does not apply to anyone who is traveling on a diplomatic or crewmember visa or to a handful of additional, unusual situations.
