US stops advising against global travel, but hits Mexico

The U.S. State Department has dropped it's global “Level 4" do not travel warning, but promptly re-imposed that same advisory on Mexico

On Thursday, the department announced it was returning to country-specific advisories.

Mexico had long enjoyed a “Level 2” advisory urging travelers to exercise caution, though some particularly violent states had “do not travel” advisories because of crime, gang shootouts and the risk of kidnapping.

In its advisory Thursday, the State Department said, “Travelers to Mexico may experience border closures, airport closures, travel prohibitions, stay at home orders, business closures, and other emergency conditions within Mexico due to COVID-19.”
