Today, as we face a worldwide pandemic, it’s not safe for any of us to travel. Be assured that one day this will come to an end.

You may also want to visit two other sites important for travelers: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US, and the World Health Organization. Both update their information daily, if not more often.
A great thank you for this info to my friend and fellow blogger Kerwin McKenzie for providing this information.
