On August 6, 2020, in close coordination with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Department of State lifted the Global Level 4 Health Advisory. The Global Advisory, initially put in place on March 19, 2020, advised U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. The Global Level 4 Health Advisory has been replaced with the following country-specific Travel Advisory for Finland: Reconsider travel to Finland due to COVID-19.
