TULARE, California (KSEE/KGPE) – Six Chinese exhibitors scheduled to appear at the World Ag Expo next week will be unable to attend due to the ongoing travel ban on foreign nationals who have traveled in China within the last 14 days, according to officials with the Ag Expo.

It comes after the order signed by President Trump at the end of last month due to ongoing fears about the spread of the novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China.
