ABSTRACT

COVID-19: Federal Travel Restrictions and Quarantine Measures [Updated May 28, 2020]   [open pdf - 658KB]

From the Document:"In response to the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the federal government has taken several actions to deter persons with potential COVID-19 infection from entering the country. This Legal Sidebar examines the legal authorities underlying two categories of these actions: First, restrictions on the entry of many non-U.S. nationals (aliens) who recently have been physically present in mainland China, Iran, much of Europe, and Brazil; and second, quarantine requirements imposed on all persons entering the United States, regardless of citizenship status. A separate Sidebar discusses additional actions the federal government has taken to restrict the movement of foreign nationals through ports of entry on the land borders with Canada and Mexico."
