(FOX NEWS) – The Trump administration will extend its European travel ban to include the U.K. and Ireland as part of continuing efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump said Saturday.
“We are looking at it very seriously, yeah, because they’ve had a little bit of activity unfortunately,” he said when asked in the White House briefing room about reports that the ban would be extended. “So we’re going to be looking at that — we actually already have looked at it and that is going to be announced.”
Vice President Mike Pence confirmed later in the briefing that the travel would be suspended – going into effect midnight Monday night EDT.
Pence said it was after the unanimous recommendation from health experts at the White House.
