On 6 August 2020, the U.S. Department of State annulled its “Level 4: Do Not Travel” Global Health Advisory, which had been in effect since 19 March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Department of State released a statement that reads in part as follows:

“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 (with Levels from 1-4 depending on country-specific conditions), in order to give travelers detailed and actionable information to make informed travel decisions. This will also provide U.S. citizens more detailed information about the current status in each country. We continue to recommend U.S. citizens exercise caution when traveling abroad due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic.

“U.S. citizens considering traveling abroad should review the entire Travel Advisory for their destination(s) on Travel.State.gov. A full list of recent updates to Travel Advisories can be found here: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories.html/. ”
