WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump has ordered a 30-day ban on travel from Europe to the United States in a step to battle the spread of Covid 19, the Coronavirus.
The ban begins Friday, March 13, and will, the President said, be monitored and adjusted as needed based on conditions.
He said Americans who have been properly screened can return prior to the 30 days.
Trump called for political unity in the fight, saying the country must come together as one nation, one family.
In addition, he proposed financial aid for workers who hit financial hardships because they have been infected or were caring for someone infected.
He also proposed low-interest loans for small businesses impacted by the virus.
