USA will lift travel restriction

as per this document travel restrictions will be terminated . https://www.federalregister.gov/docu...-have-recently

this document terminates arrival restrictions that are applicable to flights
carrying persons who had recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, the
People’s Republic of China (excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong
Kong and Macau); the Islamic Republic of Iran; the countries of the Schengen Area; the
United Kingdom, excluding overseas territories outside of Europe; the Republic of
Ireland; or the Federative Republic of Brazil. These arrival restrictions direct such flights
to only land at a limited set of U.S. airports where the U.S. Government (USG) had
focused public health resources conducting enhanced entry screening. Other measures to
protect public health will remain in place.

And it’s not about lifting travel restrictions. It’s just allowing flights from banned countries to land at any airport, while until now they were restricted to some airports. But any non-essential travel from those countries is still not possible. So we are very far from lifting travel restrictions.
