President Biden is suspending entry to non-citizens as a response to growing number of cases of covid-19 from India.

In a White House statement, the president cites proactive measures to protect the Nation’s public health from travelers entering the United States from that jurisdiction.

The proclamation explicitly says those who were physically present within the Republic of India will be barred from entering during a 14-day waiting period.

The new rule takes into effect on may 4th.
