U.S. Consulate General Announces Updated Travel Health Notice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevent
August 18, 2020

1: Exercise normal precautions. 2: Exercise increased caution. 3: Reconsider travel. 4: Do not travel

On August 17, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) upgraded the Travel Health Advisory Notice for Bermuda from Level 3 to Level 2, due to COVID-19. The COVID-19 risk in Bermuda is moderate, however, the CDC recommends travelers to Bermuda practice enhanced precautions.

On August 6, 2020, in close coordination with the CDC, the Department of State lifted the Global Level 4 Health Advisory, which was initially put in place on March 19, advising U.S. citizens to avoid international travel. The lifting of the Global Level 4 Health Advisory precipitated a return to individual country travel advisories.  In the case of Bermuda, the country was upgraded to a Travel Advisory Level 3, which currently stands under the Department of State’s Global Travel Advisory. As conditions evolve, the Department of State will regularly update advice to U.S. travelers.

All U.S. citizens are advised to read country specific Travel Advisories and U.S. Embassy and Consulate COVID-19 pages for updates on the impact of the virus worldwide. We continue to recommend U.S. citizens exercise caution when traveling abroad due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic.

We also encourage U.S. citizens to stay informed and follow updates on Travel.state.gov and to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive timely Alerts about evolving health and safety conditions in their planned destinations.

Visit the Consulate’s COVID-19 page for more information.
