This travel ban is incredibly frustrating.
Yes, there is a pandemic happening and travel should be restricted. However, blanket travel bans with no exemptions have implications as well. Personally, my fiancé lives in the UK, and has been barred from the US since March. Other than travelling to the UK (still risky international travel), there’s no way around this separation. I’m not the only one; there have been various groups of separated families/partners arguing for travel exemptions.
Figured I’d throw my own two cents in. There’s a ton of talk about mental health, but it’s hard to take care of yourself when you can’t live your life with any degree of joy with the people you love.
