US won’t lift travel restrictions ‘in short term’ due to Delta variant

The US will not lift any current travel restrictions “at this point” because of concerns about the rapidly spreading Covid-19 Delta variant and rising coronavirus cases in the United States, a White House official has told Reuters.

The decision follows a White House meeting of senior officials late on Friday and means that the restrictions that have stopped large parts of the world’s population from reaching the US since last year won’t be removed in the short term.

“Given where we are today with the Delta variant, the United States will maintain existing travel restrictions at this point,” the White House Official told the news agency. “Driven by the Delta variant, cases are rising here at home, particularly among those who are unvaccinated and appear likely continue to increase in the weeks ahead.”
