President Trump said today that domestic travel restrictions due to the novel coronavirus haven’t been discussed, but they remain a possibility.
“Are you considering travel restrictions within the United States, such as to Washington state or to California?” a reporter asked the President during an Oval Office meeting between Trump and Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.
“We haven’t discussed that yet. Is it a possibility? Yes, if somebody gets a little bit out of control, if an area gets too hot,” Trump said.
“You see what they’re doing in New Rochelle, which is good, frankly, but it’s not enforced,” Trump said of the New York area being impacted by the virus. “It’s not very strong, but people know they’re being watched.”
