US to ban entry on travellers from South Africa, UK and 28 other countries

President Joe Biden will ban most non-US citizens who have recently been in South Africa from entering the US from Saturday in an effort to stem the spread of a new coronavirus variant, public health officials told Reuters.

Biden will also reintroduce a travel ban on nearly all non-US passengers who have been in Brazil, the UK, Ireland and 26 countries in Europe that allow travel across open borders.

A number of other travel restrictions are also set to come into force this week, with an order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director (CDC) requiring masks on all planes, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-share vehicles, officials said.

On Tuesday, new CDC rules take effect requiring all international air travellers aged two and older to present a negative coronavirus test taken within three calendar days of travel or proof of recovery from Covid-19 to enter the United States.

CDC officials said they would consider case-by-case humanitarian exemptions for some travellers if needed.

The CDC order says travellers should self-quarantine for seven days upon return to the US and consider getting a new Covid test within three to five days of returning.
