According to the advisories, permanent U.S. residents and family members and some other non-U.S. citizens, such as students will be exempted.

“Any decisions about reopening travel will be guided by our public health and medical experts. We take this incredibly seriously,” – asserted by the White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
