The US Department of State has removed the Level 4 “do not travel” notice for the Dominican Republic before Thanksgiving.

As of Thursday, the Caribbean destination is at a Level 3 “reconsider travel,” with the government warning of health and safety measures and conditions related to COVID. “The Dominican Republic has lifted stay-at-home requests and resumed some transportation options and business operations,” the State Department said in Thursday’s update.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.

The Dominican Republic has been open to tourism since July and recently removed its COVID-19 testing requirement in favor of random rapid testing for a small percentage of arrivals.

The country also offers travelers free insurance until the end of the year to cover potential costs in case they fall ill with the coronavirus.

The Dominican Republic remains one of the most popular international destinations amid the pandemic, as it remains one of the most accessible to Americans, who do not need to be tested or isolate themselves for two weeks to visit.
