Travel Advisories
"Know Before You Go"

Clerk Hanlon is reminding travelers to be prepared with up-to-date information before doing any traveling.

The U.S. Department of State is advising U.S. citizens to reconsider traveling abroad at this time, as many areas throughout the world are experiencing Coronavirus outbreaks and taking action that may limit travel mobility.

President Trump signed a proclamation restricting travel to the United States from foreign nationals who have been in certain European countries. This does not affect U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, as they will be permitted to return from the European Schengen area. 

The mentioned European Schengen consists of the following 26 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

"If traveling, it is important to check the current U.S. State Department advisories and latest information for your destination," said Clerk Hanlon. "Conditions in other countries can change rapidly, and you should always be informed of the latest travel information by visiting the U.S. Department of State and CDC's websites, especially during this Coronavirus outbreak."
