The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued several Level 4 Travel Alerts regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As of April 5, 2021, the CDC's High-Level Alerts state, 'Travelers should avoid all travel to these countries.'

The list of countries includes, but is not limited to, Argentina, Belgium, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, France, Greece, and many others.

The CDC stated 'Because of the current situation, even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants and should avoid all travel to these countries. If you must travel, get fully vaccinated before travel.'

There are three experimental COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the USA, and globally, there are nine other COVID-19 vaccines currently available worldwide.

Furthermore, check with your destination's Office of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Health or the US Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, Country Information page for details about entry requirements and restrictions for arriving travelers.

Additionally, returning to the USA has new requirements.

All air passengers coming to the USA, including U.S. citizens and fully vaccinated people, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result in no more than 3 days before travel or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months before they board a flight to the USA, says the CDC.

And do not travel if you were exposed to COVID-19, you are sick, you test positive for COVID-19, or you are waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test. Moreover, don’t travel with someone who is sick, says the CDC.
