"I think the travel restrictions that we have now, particularly from China and parts of Europe, need to stay in place as we get the economy back up and running and back open," Chad Wolf the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security said in an interview on Fox News Saturday.
"I would say that those travel restrictions are more important now than they ever have been. So we need to be smart about that," he said on "Cavuto Live."
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is part of DHS, has issued new guidelines for summer travel.
"Travelers are encouraged to wear face protection to the checkpoint as well. Please note, however, passengers may need to adjust it during the screening process," TSA said in a press release.
"Travelers are also encouraged to remove items such as belts, and items from their pockets, like wallets, keys and phones, and put them directly into their carry-on bags instead of into the bins to reduce touch-points during the screening process."
