President Donald Trump Announces Travel Ban From the UK and Ireland. On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump announced that he would be extending the European coronavirus travel ban to the UK and Ireland. “We are looking at it very seriously, yeah, because they’ve had a little bit of activity, unfortunately,” President Trump said during the White House press briefing on Saturday. “So we’re going to be looking at that -- we actually already have looked at it and that is going to be announced.”

Vice President Mike Pence confirmed later in the briefing that the travel would be suspended - going into effect midnight Monday night EDT. He said it was after the unanimous recommendation from health experts at the White House. Pence emphasized that Americans currently abroad will be allowed to return home, but will be tested for the virus on their return through certain, limited airports. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said that it specifically applies to foreign nationals who have been in the U.K. or Ireland in the last 14 days and that it does not apply to U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents, and foreign diplomats. It also does not apply to the cargo.

Wolf also said that major cruise lines have agreed to suspend outbound trips for 30 days, that smaller lines had followed suit, and that in some limited cases the government had given orders to "a small handful" to not sail. Those restrictions began late Friday, he said. Trump announced late Wednesday that travel from Europe would be restricted for 30 days -- but he initially exempted the U.K. and Ireland. The Department of Homeland Security went on to clarify that the ban affects most foreign nationals who were in Europe’s passport-free “Schengen Area” within 14 days prior to traveling to the U.S.

The area in question consists of 26 countries, including France, Italy, German, Greece, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Norway, and Sweden. The Trump administration had slapped a travel ban on foreign nationals who had visited China and Iran last month. President Trump has taken strong, decisive action to combat the coronavirus. On Friday, he announced during a press conference that he was declaring a national emergency to combat the coronavirus. The declaration will free up $50 billion in relief.

“We’re taking several decisive new actions in our very vigilant effort to combat and ultimately defeat the coronavirus,” President Trump said. “We had some very old and obsolete rules that we had to live with that worked under certain circumstances but not under mass circumstances. They were in place a long time and we’re breaking them down now and they’re very useful for certain instances but not for this.” “To unleash the full power of the federal government under this effort, I’m officially declaring a national emergency,” President Trump said. “Then as I am taking will open up access to up to $50 billion of very important and a large amount of money for states and territories and localities in our shared fight against this disease.” “In furtherance of the order, I’m urging every state to set up emergency operations centers effective immediately,” President Trump continued. “I’m also asking every hospital in this country to activate its emergency preparedness plan so they can meet the needs of Americans everywhere. The hospitals are very engaged.”
