“Don’t Travel” — US Department of State
On March 19, 2020, the U.S. Department of State issued a global Level 4 health advisory. The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to “avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.”
This advisory comes as many Americans are already stranded in countries that have closed their airports to both incoming and outgoing flights. There is no indication when the Level 4 advisory will be lifted or when global travel will return to normal.
