I am asking this question for my friend. Their father has got covid and they want to go back to Kerala, India for a few days. They work as internal medicine physician in NC on J1 visa and are on COVID duty.
Would they be subjected to the Presidential proclamation 10199? which means they would have to stay in a place like Mexico/Qatar,etc for 14 days before coming to the US?
We are confused because this article says its NOT needed
And this one says its needed.
Any information is appreciated.
