From the CDC Regarding COVID-19: Resources for Travelers
- Warning: Level 3, Avoid Nonessential Travel – Widespread Ongoing Transmission
- The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. In countries where commercial travel options remain available, U.S. citizens should arrange for immediate return to the U.S., unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite length of time. For more information about possible travel restrictions, contact your destination’s U.S. Embassy or Consulate or visit the Department of State website.
Considerations for Travelers – Coronavirus in the U.S.
COVID-19 cases and deaths have been reported in all 50 states, and the situation is constantly changing. Because travel increases your chances of getting infected and spreading COVID-19, staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from getting sick.
- Passengers who return from a cruise ship or river cruise voyage are advised to stay home for 14 days, monitor their health, and practice social distancing.
- CDC has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for cruise ship travel.
