White House plans new system for foreign travel, contact tracing rules
VOA says the United States is developing a “new system for international travel” that will include contact tracing for when the nation eventually lifts travel restrictions that bar much of the world’s population from entering, a senior White House official said Wednesday.
White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zients told the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board that the administration does not plan to immediately relax any travel restrictions, citing COVID-19 delta variant cases in the United States and around the world.
Reuters first reported early in August that the White House was developing vaccine entry requirements that could cover nearly all foreign visitors. The White House previously confirmed it was considering mandating vaccines for foreign international visitors.
