WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of State advises U.S. citizens to reconsider travel abroad due to the global impact of COVID-19.

The extraordinary global health advisory late Wednesday followed President Donald Trump’s announcement of European travel restrictions. Earlier in the day, the World Health Organization had declared the illness a pandemic and urged aggressive action by all nations to stop it.

Many areas throughout the world are now experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and taking action that may limit traveler mobility, including quarantines and border restrictions.

Even countries, jurisdictions, or areas where cases have not been reported may restrict travel without notice.
