ALERT: Donald Trump May Block American Citizens From Re-Entry To The United States if COVID Infection Suspected
The Trump Administration is weighing a new rule that would temporarily block an American citizen or legal permanent resident from returning to the United States from abroad if authorities believe the person might be infected with the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump has already imposed rules that ban entry by some foreigners into the United States, citing the risk of allowing the virus to spread from hot spots around the world. But so far those rules have not applied to American citizens.

Now, a draft regulation proposes giving the federal government the power to do so in individual, limited circumstances. Federal agencies have been asked to submit feedback on the proposal to the White House by next Tuesday.

Medical experts have warned that such restrictions would make little difference in controlling the pandemic, since there is already widespread community transmission in the United States.

Re: ALERT: Donald Trump May Block American Citizens From Re-Entry To The United States if COVID Infection Suspected
So I guess my questions are:

1. How is this supposed to help when we already have 20,000 - 50,000 new cases each day due to domestic spread?

2. Where are these Americans supposed to go if they are denied entry after they arrive at an American airport?
