State Department advises all US citizens to ‘reconsider travel abroad’ due to virus pandemic

The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a pandemic and is urging aggressive action from all countries to fight it.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. State Department is advising all American citizens to “reconsider travel abroad” due to the virus pandemic.

The State Department website says the advisory to reconsider travel abroad was issued on Wednesday, shortly after President Trump addressed the nation Wednesday night from the Oval Office on the U.S. coronavirus response.

The Global Level 3 Health Advisory says U.S. citizens should reconsider international travel as the COVID-19 outbreak spreads worldwide.

The department encourages people to check for individual travel advisories online at

Federal officials say citizens should make sure to check with airlines or cruise lines for updated information on travel plans or restrictions, and follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how to limit the virus’ spread.

The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a pandemic and is urging aggressive action from all countries to fight it.

Trump announced in his Oval Office address that he is sharply restricting European passenger travel to the U.S. and moving to ease the pandemic’s economic costs. Soaring cases in the U.S. and Europe’s status as the new epicenter of the pandemic underscore the challenge. 

While Italy exceeds 12,000 cases and the United States has topped 1,300, China reported a record low of just 15 new cases. Three-fourths of its patients have recovered.  

To put the coronavirus numbers into some context, millions of Americans get the flu every single year and there are thousands of flu deaths annually.

Since October 2019, the CDC estimates around 32 million Americans have gotten the flu. That’s one in every 10 Americans.

Chair Lummis and members of the subcommittee, thank you for the opportunity to provide information the future of We are honored to speak before you today on how this program supports the mission of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service (Forest Service) and other federal agencies in delivering outstanding outdoor recreation services to the American people. We are Joe Meade, Director of Recreation, Heritage, and Volunteer Resources, National Forest System and Rick DeLappe, Recreation One Stop Program Manager.

Now, more than ever, federal agencies must connect with urban, suburban, and rural populations and encourage outdoor stewardship and remain relevant in our ever-changing world. We know the benefits of outdoor recreational experiences on physical and mental health. We know the demand for access to outdoor settings and outdoor recreational experiences are increasing at a rapid pace, and we know that federal land and water management agencies, assisted by partners and service providers, host the largest and most diverse array of outdoor recreation opportunities in the world.

Outdoor recreation is an essential part of our American culture. Thousands of rural and urban communities benefit from recreation on federal lands. When Americans play outside during outings or overnight trips, their spending directly supports outdoor-oriented industries such as outfitting and guiding, lodging, and concessions, many of which are small businesses, and many more. In 2012, outdoor recreationists made more than 938 million visits to federal lands and waterways, spending $51 billion and supporting 880,000 jobs. Many of these jobs are located in rural communities and are associated with numerous outdoor industries and small businesses. For the Forest Service, outdoor recreational experiences are the single largest contribution to the gross domestic product and local economies, generating over 13 billion dollars in revenue and supporting approximately 205,000 jobs.

The federal lands and waters reservation system, Recreation One Stop, and the interagency website are critical components of providing these services.

Background on Recreation One Stop

Recreation One Stop (R1S) is an interagency partnership among federal agencies to provide reservation services, sharable data, and recreation trip-planning tools for federal lands and waters across the United States. R1S was created as one of the Quicksilver e-government initiatives under the Bush administration in 2002 with the primary goal of reducing redundancy by combining the online reservation services of the Forest Service, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the National Park Service.

At that time, the program was focused primarily on providing advanced reservations through the website for developed campgrounds and tickets for a few locations such as the Washington Monument and Mammoth Cave. R1S also provided a rudimentary data-sharing tool, which allowed third parties access to a single bulk download of all recreation data. The

In AB 1887, the California Legislature determined that “California must take action to avoid supporting or financing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.” (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subd. (a)(5).) To that end, AB 1887 prohibits a state agency, department, board, or commission from requiring any state employees, officers, or members to travel to a state that, after June 26, 2015, has enacted a law that (1) has the effect of voiding or repealing existing state or local protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression; (2) authorizes or requires discrimination against same-sex couples or their families or on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression; or (3) creates an exemption to antidiscrimination laws in order to permit discrimination against same-sex couples or their families or on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subds. (b)(1), (2).) In addition, the law prohibits California from approving a request for state-funded or state-sponsored travel to such a state. (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subd. (b)(2).)

The travel prohibition applies to state agencies, departments, boards, authorities, and commissions, including an agency, department, board, authority, or commission of the University of California, the Board of Regents of the University of California, and the California State University. (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subd. (b).)

The law also requires the Attorney General to develop, maintain, and post on his Internet Web site a current list of states that are subject to the travel ban. (Gov. Code, § 11139.8, subd. (e).)

States Subject to AB 1887’s Travel Prohibition

The following states are currently subject to California’s ban on state-funded and state-sponsored travel:

Boating is a popular pastime in Georgia. Lake Allatoona and Lake Lanier both rank among the busiest Corps of Engineer lakes in the country. Thousands of boaters head to Georgia’s rivers, reservoirs and the Atlantic Ocean during the peak boating season, which runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day. To learn more about Georgia’s boating regulations, boat ramp locations, boater education, or how to register your boat, visit the Wildlife Resources Division’s boating information. In addition, more than 30 state parks have boats for rent by the hour, including motorized fishing boats, pedal boats or canoes.


State parks offer a wide range of camping opportunities, from RV pull-throughs to primitive backpacking sites, and from walk-in tent sites to yurts. For more information on camping opportunities, visit the Parks, Recreation and Historic Sites Division’s activities and accommodations and plan your next trip to one of Georgia’s state parks. Primitive camping also is allowed on wildlife management areas in designated campgrounds unless otherwise posted at the check station. Check the outdoor hunting regulations in the hunting regulations for more information on camping on wildlife management areas.
