SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In Proclamation 9994 of March 13, 2020 (Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID–19) Outbreak), President Trump declared a national emergency recognizing the threat that the novel (new) coronavirus known as SARS–CoV–2 poses to the Nation’s healthcare systems. The President declared the policy of the United States to respond to the ongoing, PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 31957 unprecedented outbreak of COVID–19 (the disease caused by SARS–CoV–2) with every tool and resource available to the United States Government. Consistent with this policy, the President has suspended and limited the entry of aliens recently present in certain foreign jurisdictions where significant COVID–19 outbreaks have occurred. These jurisdictions include the People’s Republic of China (excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau), the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom (excluding overseas territories outside of Europe), the Republic of Ireland, and, effective at 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 26, 2020, the Federative Republic of Brazil. The potential for widespread further transmission of this virus by infected individuals seeking to enter the United States threatens the security of our transportation system and infrastructure, and the national security. Noting the President’s actions and recent pronouncements by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the novel coronavirus outbreak, including the categorization by WHO of COVID–19 as a pandemic on March 11, 2020, and to assist in preventing the introduction, transmission, and spread of this communicable disease globally and in the United States, DHS, in coordination with CDC and other Federal, state, and local agencies charged with protecting the American public, is implementing enhanced protocols to ensure that all travelers seeking to enter the United States with recent travel from, or who were otherwise recently present within, Brazil are provided appropriate public health services. DHS previously published similar arrival restrictions in the Federal Register. This document does not modify those documents, except that the Secretary is adding two airports to the list of airports where flights subject to those arrival restrictions are permitted to land. The previously published arrival restrictions are as follows: • Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present Within the People’s Republic of China, 85 FR 6044 (Feb. 4, 2020); • Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present Within the People’s Republic of China, 85 FR 7214 (Feb. 7, 2020); • Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights Carrying Persons E:\FR\FM\28MYR1.SGM 28MYR1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 31958 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 103 / Thursday, May 28, 2020 / Rules and Regulations Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present Within the People’s Republic of China or the Islamic Republic of Iran, 85 FR 12731 (Mar. 4, 2020); • Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present Within the Countries of the Schengen Area, 85 FR 15059 (Mar. 17, 2020); and • Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present Within the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, 85 FR 15714 (Mar. 19, 2020). Enhanced traveler arrival protocols are part of a layered approach used with other public health measures already in place to detect arriving travelers who are exhibiting overt signs of illness. Additional measures include requiring carriers to distribute a CDC health declaration form to passengers on flights originating in the People’s Republic of China, excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau; the Islamic Republic of Iran; specified countries comprising the Schengen Area; the United Kingdom (excluding overseas territories outside Europe); the Republic of Ireland; and Brazil, to support CDC passenger health screening and contact tracing. U.S. Government Representatives will collect this form from passengers upon arrival in the United States. Other measures to protect the public include reporting of ill travelers by carriers during travel to appropriate public health officials for evaluation and referral of ill travelers arriving at a U.S. port of entry by CBP to appropriate public health officials. To ensure that travelers with recent presence in Brazil are screened appropriately, DHS directs that all flights to the United States carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, Brazil arrive at airports where enhanced public health services and protocols have been implemented. Although DHS will continue to work with carriers to ensure that they identify persons who may have traveled from, or who may have otherwise recently been present within, the affected areas prior to boarding, carriers shall comply with the requirements of this document in all cases, including when such persons are identified after boarding but prior to takeoff. On Friday, January 31, 2020, DHS posted a document on the Federal Register public inspection page, announcing the DHS Secretary’s decision that arrival restrictions regarding the People’s Republic of VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:03 May 27, 2020 Jkt 250001 China (excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau) would go into effect at 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, February 2, 2020, at seven airports. The document announcing this decision was published in the Federal Register on February 4, 2020 at 85 FR 6044. On Friday, February 7, 2020, DHS published a document adding four airports to the list of airports where flights subject to the arrival restrictions are permitted to land and describing when the arrival restrictions would include those airports. See 85 FR 7214. On Friday, March 13, 2020, DHS posted a document on the Federal Register public inspection page adding two airports to the list of airports where flights subject to the arrival restrictions are permitted to land. The document announcing this decision was published in the Federal Register on March 17, 2020, at 85 FR 15059. As with actions related to the People’s Republic of China, the Islamic Republic of Iran, the countries of the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom, and Ireland, DHS anticipates that airlines will be able to fully support implementation of these arrival restrictions. Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to All Flights Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present Within Brazil Pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1433(c), 19 CFR 122.32, 49 U.S.C. 114, and 49 CFR 1544.305 and 1546.105, DHS has the authority to limit the locations where all flights entering the United States from abroad may land. Under this authority and effective for flights departing after 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, I hereby direct all operators of aircraft to ensure that all flights carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, Brazil land only at one of the following 15 airports: • John F.

For purposes of this document, crew and flights carrying only cargo (i.e., no passengers or non-crew) are excluded from the applicable measures set forth in this notification. This direction is subject to any changes to the airport landing destination that may be required for aircraft and/or airspace safety, as directed by the Federal Aviation Administration.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In Proclamation 9994 of March 13, 2020 (Declaring a National 
Emergency Concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) 
Outbreak), President Trump declared a national emergency recognizing 
the threat that the novel (new) coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2 poses 
to the Nation's healthcare systems. The President declared the policy 
of the United States to respond to the ongoing, unprecedented outbreak 
of COVID-19 (the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2) with every tool and 
resource available to the United States Government. Consistent with 
this policy, the President has suspended and limited the entry of 
aliens recently present in certain foreign jurisdictions where 
significant COVID-19 outbreaks have occurred. These jurisdictions 
include the People's Republic of China (excluding the Special 
Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau), the Islamic Republic of 
Iran, the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom (excluding overseas 
territories outside of Europe), the Republic of Ireland, and, effective 
at 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 26, 2020, the Federative Republic of Brazil.
    The potential for widespread further transmission of this virus by 
infected individuals seeking to enter the United States threatens the 
security of our transportation system and infrastructure, and the 
national security. Noting the President's actions and recent 
pronouncements by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the novel coronavirus 
outbreak, including the categorization by WHO of COVID-19 as a pandemic 
on March 11, 2020, and to assist in preventing the introduction, 
transmission, and spread of this communicable disease globally and in 
the United States, DHS, in coordination with CDC and other Federal, 
state, and local agencies charged with protecting the American public, 
is implementing enhanced protocols to ensure that all travelers seeking 
to enter the United States with recent travel from, or who were 
otherwise recently present within, Brazil are provided appropriate 
public health services.
    DHS previously published similar arrival restrictions in the 
Federal Register. This document does not modify those documents, except 
that the Secretary is adding two airports to the list of airports where 
flights subject to those arrival restrictions are permitted to land. 
The previously published arrival restrictions are as follows:
     Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights 
Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise 
Present Within the People's Republic of China, 85 FR 6044 (Feb. 4,

Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present Within the 
People's Republic of China or the Islamic Republic of Iran, 85 FR 12731

     Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights 
Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise 
Present Within the Countries of the Schengen Area, 85 FR 15059 (Mar. 
17, 2020); and
     Notification of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights 
Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise 
Present Within the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, 85 FR 
15714 (Mar. 19, 2020).
    Enhanced traveler arrival protocols are part of a layered approach 
used with other public health measures already in place to detect 
arriving travelers who are exhibiting overt signs of illness. 
Additional measures include requiring carriers to distribute a CDC 
health declaration form to passengers on flights originating in the 
People's Republic of China, excluding the Special Administrative 
Regions of Hong Kong and Macau; the Islamic Republic of Iran; specified 
countries comprising the Schengen Area; the United Kingdom (excluding 
overseas territories outside Europe); the Republic of Ireland; and 
Brazil, to support CDC passenger health screening and contact tracing. 
U.S. Government Representatives will collect this form from passengers 
upon arrival in the United States. Other measures to protect the public 
include reporting of ill travelers by carriers during travel to 
appropriate public health officials for evaluation and referral of ill 
travelers arriving at a U.S. port of entry by CBP to appropriate public 
health officials.
    To ensure that travelers with recent presence in Brazil are 
screened appropriately, DHS directs that all flights to the United 
States carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were 
otherwise present within, Brazil arrive at airports where enhanced 
public health services and protocols have been implemented. Although 
DHS will continue to work with carriers to ensure that they identify 
persons who may have traveled from, or who may have otherwise recently 
been present within, the affected areas prior to boarding, carriers 
shall comply with the requirements of this document in all cases, 
including when such persons are identified after boarding but prior to 
takeoff.
    On Friday, January 31, 2020, DHS posted a document on the Federal 
Register public inspection page, announcing the DHS Secretary's 
decision that arrival restrictions regarding the People's Republic of 
China (excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and 
Macau) would go into effect at 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, 
February 2, 2020, at seven airports. The document announcing this 
decision was published in the Federal Register on February 4, 2020 at 
85 FR 6044. On Friday, February 7, 2020, DHS published a document 
adding four airports to the list of airports where flights subject to 
the arrival restrictions are permitted to land and describing when the 
arrival restrictions would include those airports. See 85 FR 7214. On 
Friday, March 13, 2020, DHS posted a document on the Federal Register 
public inspection page adding two airports to the list of airports 
where flights subject to the arrival restrictions are permitted to 
land. The document announcing this decision was published in the 
Federal Register on March 17, 2020, at 85 FR 15059.
    As with actions related to the People's Republic of China, the 
Islamic Republic of Iran, the countries of the Schengen Area, the 
United Kingdom, and Ireland, DHS anticipates that airlines will be able 
to fully support implementation of these arrival restrictions.
