Biden Admin To Restrict Travel From India To US

USA Today reports:

President Joe Biden’s administration plans to restrict travel from India to the US beginning Tuesday due to a surge in COVID cases. The move follows a recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

“The policy will be implemented in light of extraordinarily high COVID-19 caseloads and multiple variants circulating in India,” she said in a statement. Details are not yet available on whether flights will be banned from India or if foreign nationals will be banned from entering.
