The U.S. will restrict the entry of non-U.S. citizens arriving from Brazil, where coronavirus cases are spiking, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Sunday.
The order begins at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday. The entry of all foreigners who’ve been in Brazil during the 14-day period before their arrival into the U.S. will be halted, McEnany said in a statement.
The restrictions, foreshadowed earlier on Sunday by National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, don’t apply to the flow of commerce between the U.S. and Brazil.
