U.S. Senators Mike Lee and Mitt Romney released the following statement regarding travel restrictions to the United States:

“Tonight, the Administration announced it is restricting travel to the U.S. of foreign nationals who have recently been in certain European countries, listed here. While these restrictions do not apply to U.S. citizens, the Administration has indicated U.S. citizens may be subject to screening in order to return and will be directed to a limited number of airports where screening can take place.

“We are seeking additional information from the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security regarding specific guidance for Utahns and family members of Utahns who are currently abroad and wish to return to the U.S.

“In the interim, our office recommends the following actions and resources:

  • All Americans abroad should register with the State Department's STEP program, which allows the government to contact them directly with the latest information on travel to the United States. Sign up here: https://step.state.gov/step/
