Washington -

U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement on the passage of funds to address coronavirus in the United States:

“We applaud Congress and the administration for taking swift and decisive action to address the public health concerns around coronavirus. This measure should go a long way in reassuring the American people that their government is moving proactively to protect their health and safety—and that they can go about their daily lives, including travel, as long as they adhere to the basic health guidance of experts at the CDC. Health and safety are paramount, but there is also a growing risk to the U.S. economy and jobs because of coronavirus uncertainty, which this measure will hopefully help to alleviate.”


U.S. Travel Association is the national, non-profit organization representing the $1.3 trillion travel industry, an essential contributor to our nation's economy and success.
