The restrictions end the same day that the new COVID-19 test requirements take effect for all international air passengers arriving in the United States.

However, President-elect Joe Biden will take office on Wednesday. And his incoming press secretary, Jen Psaki, said his administration will not lift the restrictions.

Reuters was the first media outlet to report on the bill.
