Sen. Hawley: In Light of Coronavirus Spreading, Time to Consider Travel Restrictions to and from China

Friday, January 31, 2020

As the spread of coronavirus continues, U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) is calling for the U.S. government to consider restricting “all US commercial travel to and from China.”

This follows his recent letter to numerous government agencies on the need to weigh travel restrictions and outline their decisions as the situation develops.

His letter – sent to Departments of Health & Human Services (HHS), Homeland Security (DHS), Transportation (DOT), and Department of State last week – all have a deadline of today to issue responses to the Senator. Read the full letter here.
