Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) issued the following statement calling for an immediate suspension of all travel from China to the United States due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Congressman Byrne said: “The Chinese coronavirus is a serious global health threat whose severity and complexity is not yet understood.  Unfortunately, the danger posed to Americans is made worse by a Chinese government that cannot be trusted regarding its efforts to contain the virus.

“Because of the severity of this threat, I am calling for an immediate suspension of all travel from China to the United States until officials at the Departments of State, Health & Human Services, and Homeland Security can confirm it is safe to resume.  We must always put the health and safety of the American people first.”
