Stay informed about COVID-19

I am hearing many questions and concerns regarding the news reports of the Coronavirus (Covid-19), and I appreciate that these new developments may cause you some anxiety and introduce some uncertainty as you think about your upcoming travel plans. I would like to reassure you that I am monitoring developments and will be supporting you as this unfolds. I wanted to share some new information and guidance that we have received so that you may make an informed decision regarding travel in the upcoming months.


The following sources have up-to-date and accurate information regarding travel and the Coronavirus and may provide some guidance.


Center for Disease Control

  • Enter your travel destination and see the latest updates regarding the virus.

Department of State

  • Enter your travel destination for the latest advisories.

World Health Organization (WHO)

  • Provides the latest information about the current outbreak.

Smart Traveler Enrollment Program

  • This is a free program offered by the Department of State that allows U.S. citizens and nationals traveling and living abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. This allows you to receive important information from the Embassy about safety conditions at your destination. I recommend that you utilize this program each time you travel internationally.


The decision to travel in the next few months should be an informed one and a personal decision based on your situation. Knowing the deadlines and the updated policies as they develop is critical and we will continue to work together to evaluate your plans and make timely decisions. Our travel suppliers are monitoring the situation, and many are updating their policies regarding cancellation in order to allow you more flexibility. Please know that we are here to advocate for you as appropriate.
