The US State Department has just raised their warning for all travel abroad to level 3. They recommend that Americans reconsider all travel abroad.
Airlines are very likely to start reducing or cancelling international flights to and from the US, so if you do want to fly back to the US you should make arrangements to do so now. If you fly back from Europe today or tomorrow you will avoid new restrictions on flying home.
The warning comes on the heels of the US launching a ban on non-Americans who have visited Schengen Europe in the past 2 weeks and 4 days after advising Americans to stop taking cruises.
It also comes 2 weeks after Israel told its citizens to avoid traveling abroad. Starting later today Israel will require that everyone flying into the country from abroad go into a mandatory 2 week home quarantine.
With Coronavirus infections and deaths multiplying by the day, it’s certainly possible that the US will institute similar quarantine restrictions in the coming weeks.
Will you change your travel plans?
