Foreign nationals who had recently been to China would be barred from entering the country. American citizens returning from the province where the disease is suspected of originating would be placed under a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

Health Secretary Alex Azar commented on the situation, announcing the new measures would come into effect from Sunday:

“I have today declared that the coronavirus presents a public health emergency in the United States. Foreign nationals, other than the immediate family of US citizens and permanent residents, who have travelled in China within the last 14 days will be denied entry into the United States for this time.”
