Because of the coronavirus pandemic, there are a limited number of countries allowing Americans in. The European Union is closed to Americans and Canada and Mexico are not allowing American citizens through land borders.
The U.S. State Department has had a Global Level 4 Health Advisory posted since March 31, which says, “The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19.”
As of July 10, Americans can travel to the following places:
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Mexico (accessible by plane)
- St. Barth’s
- St. Lucia
- United Arab Emirates
- United Kingdom
Each of these places has individual rules, many require a negative COVID-19 test to enter the country, and some require a 14-day quarantine upon arrival. Many countries plan to open to Americans later in July and August.
Additionally, many countries have their own pandemic-related rules including shop closures, quarantines, curfews, limited services or other changes. Many places also have criteria or pandemic rules that change daily, which can leave travelers stranded.
Scientists believe that the spread of COVID-19, or coronavirus, started at an exotic animal market in Wuhan, China. You can help stop the incidence of viruses like these by signing this petition to ban the wildlife trade.
This is a good time to reconsider our intake of animal products to stay healthy. Eating more plant-based foods is known to help with chronic inflammation, heart health, mental wellbeing, fitness goals, nutritional needs, allergies, gut health, and more! Dairy consumption also has been linked to many health problems, including acne, hormonal imbalance, cancer, prostate cancer and has many side effects.
