Michael R Pompeo: The State Department’s Efforts and Resources
The State Department Team Is Working Tirelessly To Combat the Outbreak
The Department of State is taking decisive action to inform and safeguard U.S. citizens overseas, protect the homeland, advance the Administration’s commitment to building global health security capacity for this and future outbreaks, and reduce the impact for U.S. companies and supply chains overseas.
Our team here in Washington — and at our embassies and consulates across the globe — is working tirelessly to address the outbreak: U.S. Government Resources: For more information visit Coronavirus.gov, CDC.gov/Coronavirus, and USA.gov/Coronavirus.
The Department’s priority is protecting the United States and slowing the spread of the virus. We’ve implemented prudent travel restrictions, in conjunction with our interagency partners, for individuals who have been present in areas deemed high-risk by U.S. health authorities. To help protect U.S. citizens travelling or living abroad, we continually update our country-specific Travel Advisories and issue timely Alerts to keep U.S. citizen travellers informed and safe.
