The Trump administration on Thursday rescinded its warnings to Americans against all international travel because of the coronavirus pandemic, saying conditions no longer warrant a blanket worldwide alert.
The US State Department lifted its level-four health advisory for the entire world in order to return to country-specific warnings. That move came shortly after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revised its COVID-19 travel advisory information. The CDC lifted “do not travel” warnings for about 20 locations but advised staying away from the vast majority of the world.
“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 in order to give travellers detailed and actionable information to make informed travel decisions,” the State Department said in a statement.
“This will also provide US citizens more detailed information about the current status in each country,” it said. “We continue to recommend US citizens exercise caution when travelling abroad due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic.”
