US citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel.

Foreign exchange students currently living abroad should consider flying back to the United States, but consult with their schools first.

US citizens who wish to travel within the United States are currently not blocked from doing so by any official nationwide advisories or restrictions, but should consider the risks of being in crowded spaces and their ability to self-isolate at their destinations.
