President Joe Biden plans to sign restrictions Monday on travel to the United States to mitigate Covid-19 transmission, two White House officials confirmed Sunday.
The ban, which will take effect from Saturday [January 30], has been introduced to contain the spread of the new COVID-19 variant that had been identified in South Africa, a senior United States public health official confirmed to Reuters. The limits would affect non-U.S. citizens traveling from the United Kingdom, Ireland and much of Europe in what is known as the Schengen countries, which share a common visa process.

Principal deputy director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Dr. Anne Schuchat told Reuters: "We are adding South Africa to the restricted list because of the concerning variant present that has already spread beyond South Africa". Trump's move was made in conjunction with a new requirement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that all global travelers to the USA obtain a negative test for COVID-19 within three days of boarding their flight.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Sunday that, beginning Tuesday, it will no longer consider exceptions to its requirement that global travelers present negative coronavirus tests. Airlines had asked the agency to relax the rule for some countries with limited testing capacity.
