As the world works to slow the spread of coronavirus, countries have imposed a variety of travel restrictions.
The measures range from suspending international flights and banning travelers from impacted countries, to requiring citizens or foreign nationals to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.
Government officials across the globe say the travel bans are critical to containing the rapidly spreading coronavirus. Worldwide, more than 14,600 people have died from the virus, and more than 336,000 have been infected, according to Johns Hopkins data. In the U.S. alone there are more than 33,200 confirmed cases with the death toll at 417.
