US State Department advises against travel to the UK

Just as the England enjoys, what the UK Government has branded ‘Freedom Day’ and 3 senior ministers are isolating due to having COVID or being near someone with COVID, the US State Department issued a warning against travel here.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for the United Kingdom due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in the country. There are restrictions in place affecting U.S. citizen entry into the United Kingdom. Your risk of contracting COVID-19 and developing severe symptoms may be lower if you are fully vaccinated with an FDA authorized vaccine. Before planning any international travel, please review the CDC’s specific recommendations for fully vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers.


There was hope last week that transatlantic travel to Europe and the UK might re-open soon, or that we would have a roadmap this week. Seems a loss less likely now.
