I wanted to give you an update on the U.S. government’s response to the coronavirus.
Last night, President Trump addressed the nation and announced additional measures to protect the health and safety of the American people.
At the beginning of the outbreak, the Administration restricted travel from China and established advisories for severely impacted areas like Italy and South Korea. This early action gave us time to prepare for the virus here at home.
Now, to prevent new cases on American soil, travel from Europe to the United States will be suspended for 30 days, beginning Friday. For more information, visit the Department of Homeland Security’s website.
In addition, the Administration has partnered with the public and private sectors to expand our testing capacity. More than one million coronavirus tests have been distributed nationwide, and another four million tests will be shipped out by the end of the week.
My team and I are continuing to monitor the situation and are in regular contact with the White House, Governor Kemp’s office, and the CDC.
This is not a political issue; it's an American issue. We all play a role in combating the spread of this virus.
