On Monday, April 19, 2021, the U.S. State Department said that it will boost its “Do Not Travel” guidance to about 80% of countries worldwide, citing “unprecedented risk to travelers” from the COVID-19 pandemic. This update will result in significant increase in the number of countries at Level 4: Do Not Travel, to approximately 80% of countries worldwide, according to the statement by U.S. State Department. The State Department already have listed 34 out of 200 countries as “Level 4: Do Not Travel,” including places such as: Chad, Kosovo, Kenya, Brazil, Argentina, Haiti, Mozambique, Russia, and Tanzania. Now, about 130 countries to that “Level 4: Do Not Travel list” have been added to reach about 80%.

Most Americans have already been prevented from traveling to much of Europe due to COVID-19 restrictions. Washington has barred nearly all non-U.S. citizens who have recently been in most of Europe, China, Brazil, Iran, and South Africa. The White House has given non timeline for when it might ease those restrictions.
Airlines for America, a trade group representing major U.S. carriers, said, “the U.S. airline industry has been a strong advocate for the development of a risk-based, data-driven roadmap for restoring international travel….to urge the federal government to transparently establish the criteria, including clear metrics, benchmarks, and a timeline for reopening international markets.”
Earlier this month the CDC announced that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely travel within the United States at “low risk” but CDC Director Rochelle Walensky discouraged Americans from doing so because of high coronavirus cases nationwide. Walensky said, “We know that right now we have a surging number of cases. I would advocate against general travel overall. We are not recommending travel at this time, especially for unvaccinated individuals.”
