U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement on the evolving coronavirus situation:


“We are aware that U.S. officials have now imposed extra precautionary measures that are specifically targeted at travelers seeking to enter the U.S. from China, including the temporary quarantining of returning U.S. nationals.

"We note that there are not any warnings at all for travel within the U.S. or directed at anyone who has not been to China.

"We applaud the steps being taken to keep the U.S. safe, but we urge that precautions are continually vetted against the latest public health data and guidance from top experts, and evolve as the threat level shifts."
