Do not travel countries

The State Department will update its travel advisories to the highest level for some 80% of the world’s countries, aligning its guidance with that of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to reflect the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose unprecedented risks to travelers,” the State Department said in a statement on Monday. “In light of those risks, the Department of State strongly recommends U.S. citizens reconsider all travel abroad.”

The State Department said the shift would result in a “significant increase” in the number of countries designed Level 4: Do Not Travel. Many countries are currently listed as Level 2 or Level 3, with travelers urged to “exercise increased caution” or “reconsider travel,” respectively.
