Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took to Twitter to discuss his thoughts on the Biden administration potentially imposing travel restrictions.  

One White House official says a final decision has yet to be made but they are considering all options as the pandemic continues.

"This is a war and we’re at battle with the virus. War is messy and unpredictable, and all options are on the table," said the White House official.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says they are reviewing all options to contain the spread of new COVID-19 virus variants.

"As part of our close monitoring of the pandemic and in particular the emerging variants, we will continue to review public health options for containing and mitigating spread of the virus," a statement read, "CDC will also continue to work across government on recommendations for the travel space, and no decisions have been made."
