While other countries imposed restrictions right away the US's ban starts on Monday? I don't understand the delay? And will the ACLU call this a racist decision? https://www.reuters.com/world/us/us...rican-countries-over-new-covid-19-2021-11-26/ NANTUCKET, Mass./WASHINGTON, Nov 26 (Reuters) - The United States will bar entry to most travelers from eight southern African countries starting on Monday, after a potentially more-contagious new coronavirus variant was identified in South Africa, President Joe Biden said on Friday. The travel restrictions do not ban flights or apply to U.S. citizens and lawful U.S. permanent residents.
