The Department of Homeland Security has extended its travel restrictions for non-essential travel through Jan. 21, 2021.

DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf announced the extension via Twitter Friday morning.

Acting Secretary Wolf added that non-essential travel restrictions will be reevaluated again around early 2021 as the Trump administration continues to work on a COVID-``19 vaccine plan.

The restrictions come as coronavirus cases continue to spike around the country. Arizona has seen an increase in confirmed coronavirus cases in recent days with 6,983 new cases and 91 additional deaths reported Friday morning.
