The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said it would exercise its discretion to allow travel by U.S. citizens, permanent residents and holders of valid immigrant visas who were in either country by a Feb. 28 cut-off date. Earlier, it made a similar waiver for Americans leaving Ukraine who had been in the country by Feb. 10.
