COVID-19 - U.S. State Department Lifts Do Not Travel Advisory
Yesterday, almost 5 months after the ban went into affect, the U.S. State department revoked their “Level 4:Do Not Travel” global advisory.
"With health and safety conditions improving in some countries and potentially deteriorating in others, the Department is returning to our previous system of country-specific levels of travel advice,” the department stated in their press release on August 6, 2020. "We continue to recommend U.S. citizens exercise caution when traveling abroad due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic.”
This unprecedented worldwide advisory went into place on March 19th, around the same time travel bans were implemented against countries like Europe, the U.K. and South Korea.
Despite the State Department’s lifted ban, many countries are implementing their own bans or requirements for entering their country or even state.
