U.S. Not Lifting COVID-Related Travel Restrictions Soon!

White House announced that the travel restrictions will not be lifted due to the COVID-19 rising cases of the highly transmittable Delta variant.

White House says that the U.S. does not plan to lift travel restrictions anytime soon due to the highly transmissible COVID-19 Delta variant.

According to Reuters, officials in the administration had a meeting on Friday in which they decided to consider long-running travel restrictions due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in unvaccinated people.

CDC has reported that the seven-day average of new cases has increased by 53 percent 80 percent of which with the Delta variant.

U.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Policy Tori Emerson Barnes has delivered the following statement regarding the travel restrictions:

“Covid variants are of concern, but closed borders have not prevented the Delta variant from entering the U.S. while vaccinations are proving incredibly durable to the virus’ evolution. This is why America’s travel industry is a vocal proponent of everyone getting a vaccine—it’s the surest and fastest path to normalcy for everyone.

“While other nations, like Canada, the U.K., and much of the E.U., have all taken steps to welcome inbound travelers this summer and rebuild jobs and local economies, the United States remains closed to one of the most important segments of the travel economy—the international inbound traveler.

“Given the high rates of vaccination on both sides of the Atlantic, it is possible to begin safely welcoming back vaccinated visitors from these crucial inbound markets.

“We respectfully urge the Biden administration to revisit its decision in the very near term and begin reopening international travel to vaccinated individuals, starting with air corridors between the U.S. and nations with similar vaccination rates.”
