There is NOT a complete ban on travel to/from Europe.
- The proclamation does NOT pertain to United States Citizens or any lawful permanent resident of the United States, (detailed list below). The Proclamation only impacts foreign nationals who reside in or have visited countries in the Schengen Area in the past 14 days.

Regardless of the area you are traveling from, the proclamation does not pertain to:
- US Citizens, or any lawful permanent resident of the United States
- Any alien who is the spouse of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident
- Any alien who is the parent or legal guardian of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, provided that the U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident is unmarried and under the age of 21
