The U.S. State Department has advised Americans not to travel to China, and major airlines have suspended air travel between the United States and the Chinese mainland amid growing concern about the spread of coronavirus.
Background: The coronavirus causes flu-like symptoms and double pneumonia. Thousands of people in China have been infected and some travel-related cases in the U.S. have been detected. The World Health Organization called the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, and a number of countries are moving to impose travel and immigration restrictions to stop the virus’ spread.
BAL Analysis: Those planning travel to China are urged to reconsider their plans amid growing concern about the coronavirus and new travel limitations. Employers and visa applicants in both China and the United States should expect continued processing delays. Employers must be prepared to be flexible with employee schedules and start dates. The response to the coronavirus is evolving rapidly, and BAL will alert clients to additional restrictions as information becomes available.
