The U.S. government has implemented the following measures to detect and contain the novel coronavirus.  These measures do not apply to travelers who have only been in Taiwan during the last 14 days.

  • Non-U.S. citizens, other than immediate family of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, who have traveled to China within the last 14 days will be denied entry into the United States at this time.
  • Any U.S. citizen returning to the United States who has been in Hubei Province, China in the previous 14 days will be subject to up to 14 days of mandatory quarantine.
  • Any U.S. citizen returning to the United States who has been in the rest of mainland China within the previous 14 days will undergo proactive entry health screening at a select number of ports of entry and up to 14 days of monitored self-quarantine to ensure they have not contracted the virus and do not pose a public health risk.
