The U.S. has maintained a conservative stance on reopening its borders for discretionary travel, even as other countries such as Canada are loosening restrictions.
Psaki said administration officials remain in “active discussion about a range of steps that can be taken” on travel, guided by its own health experts.
“For any of these recommendations, we are always going to be guided by our North Star, which is the CDC and our health and medical experts,” she said.
Psaki declined to say whether the U.S. would extend the mask mandate on public transportation, which is set to expire in September.
“I don’t want to get ahead of any guidance by our CDC, but certainly they will continue to provide guidance on masks that keeps more people safe,” she said.
