BREAKING: White House Considering Domestic Travel Ban for Florida with Rising U.K. Strain Numbers in State

According to various news reports, the White House is considering a travel ban on domestic flights to and from the state of Florida.

While COVID-19 cases in Florida have declined in recent weeks, the U.K. variant has spread rapidly in the state during that time. It now accounts for up to 15% of new cases in Florida, according to estimates from a team of researchers modeling the variant’s growth across the country — up from about 1% at the beginning of January.
