UPDATE: The definition of "close family" in Executive Order 13780 has been expanded.
The District Court in Hawaii ruled that in addition to what was previously defined as "close family" now also includes "grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunt and uncles, nephews and nieces, and cousins."
The previous U.S. government guidance defined "close family" as "parent (including parent-in-law), spouse, fiancé, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, sibling, whether whole or half, and including step relationships."
