Modifies US travel alert on Mexico; go to level 3

The United States government modified the travel alert destined for Mexico. The maximum alert level changed, number 4, where it is recommended not to travel, and now it has gone to level 3 where it is simply asked to reconsider the displacement to Mexico.

It is suggested to US citizens that if they intend to travel to Mexico, they reconsider, due to the COVID-19 situation.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a Level 3 Travel Health Advisory for Mexico, due to COVID-19.

“Mexico has lifted restrictions on staying at home, in some areas, and some commercial and transportation operations have resumed,” detailed the US State Department.

The alert modification does not include and does not have to do with the states that individually have level 4 security due to crime problems. In those cases, the maximum alert level is maintained for Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa and Tamaulipas.

“The purpose of this notice is to provide US citizens with up-to-date information and to keep US citizens informed while they are abroad or planning to travel,” said the US embassy in Mexico.
