However, the May 3, 2021 Federal Register notification did not terminate the arrival restrictions for flights carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, the Republic of Guinea because the most recent case of EVD in the Republic of Guinea was confirmed on April 3, 2021. For the reasons set forth below, the Secretary has decided to terminate the arrival restrictions applicable to flights carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, the Republic of Guinea. These restrictions funnel relevant arriving air passengers to one of six designated airports of entry where the United States is implementing enhanced public health measures. Since April 3, 2021, there VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:42 May 17, 2021 Jkt 253001 have been no new confirmed EVD cases reported in the Republic of Guinea and all contacts of cases that were being monitored for EVD have passed the 21day incubation period. With no new hospitalized patients with EVD and no contacts of confirmed EVD cases still requiring monitoring, the potential risk for Ebola virus exposure in the Republic of Guinea has greatly diminished. Therefore, flight restrictions are no longer required for flights carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, the Republic of Guinea.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 4, 2021, the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) 
announced arrival restrictions applicable to flights carrying persons 
who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present within, the 
Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or the Republic of Guinea, 
consistent with 6 U.S.C. 112(a), 19 U.S.C. 1433(c), and 19 CFR 122.32, 
in a Federal Register document titled ``Arrival Restrictions Applicable 
to Flights Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were 
Otherwise Present Within the Democratic Republic of the Congo or the 
Republic of Guinea'' (86 FR 12534). On May 3, 2021, the Secretary 
terminated the arrival restrictions applicable to flights carrying 
persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present 
within, the DRC in a Federal Register document titled ``Termination of 
Arrival Restrictions Applicable to Flights Carrying Persons Who Have 
Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise Present Within the Democratic 
Republic of the Congo'' (86 FR 23277). However, the May 3, 2021 Federal 
Register notification did not terminate the arrival restrictions for 
flights carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were 
otherwise present within, the Republic of Guinea because the most 
recent case of EVD in the Republic of Guinea was confirmed on April 3, 
2021.
    For the reasons set forth below, the Secretary has decided to 
terminate the arrival restrictions applicable to flights carrying 
persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present 
within, the Republic of Guinea. These restrictions funnel relevant 
arriving air passengers to one of six designated airports of entry 
where the United States is implementing enhanced public health 
measures. Since April 3, 2021, there have been no new confirmed EVD 
cases reported in the Republic of Guinea and all contacts of cases that 
were being monitored for EVD have passed the 21-day incubation period. 
With no new hospitalized patients with EVD and no contacts of confirmed 
EVD cases still requiring monitoring, the potential risk for Ebola 
virus exposure in the Republic of Guinea has greatly diminished. 
Therefore, flight restrictions are no longer required for flights 
carrying persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise 
present within, the Republic of Guinea.

Notice of Termination of Arrival Restrictions Applicable to All Flights 
Carrying Persons Who Have Recently Traveled From or Were Otherwise 
Present Within the Republic of Guinea

    Pursuant to 6 U.S.C. 112(a), 19 U.S.C. 1433(c), and 19 CFR 122.32, 
and effective as of 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on May 14, 2021, 
for all affected flights arriving at a United States airport, I hereby 
terminate the arrival restrictions applicable to flights carrying 
persons who have recently traveled from, or were otherwise present 
within, the Republic of Guinea announced in the Arrival Restrictions 
document published at 86 FR 12534 (March 4, 2021).
