The State Department withdrew the recommendation, introduced in March, for US citizens not to travel abroad due to the coronavirus. This is stated in a message on the website of the federal department on August 6.
“The Department of State is returning to our previous system of travel advice for specific countries,” the report says.
Travelers were advised to study the situation with COVID-19 in other countries before planning a trip. “We continue to recommend that US citizens exercise caution when traveling overseas due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic,” the statement said.
The recommendation for Americans not to leave the country has been in effect since March 19.
