What does the US government advise ?

"The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect countries differently. Challenges to any international travel at this time may include mandatory quarantines, travel restrictions, and closed borders. Foreign governments may implement restrictions with little notice, even in destinations that were previously low risk. If you choose to travel internationally, your trip may be severely disrupted, and it may be difficult to arrange travel back to the United States" warn the US Department of State.

Indeed, many countries are continuing to close their borders to US citizens all over the world. On your way back, you may be asked to observe a 14-days self-quarantine, if you have traveled country classified as level 3, 4 or 5 by the US government. The countries' levels can be checked on the US government's dedicated map, that you can consult clicking here.
