While we’re all worried about getting the Coronavirus under control, many Missourians that have been stranded all around the world are worried about how they’re going to get back home.
Senator Josh Hawley is working with the State Department to facilitate the swift and safe return of dozens of Missourians in the midst of COVID-19 travel restrictions. He is in contact with Missouri families and groups of travelers — including a church group — currently stranded in Guatemala, Honduras, the Philippines, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Peru.
Senator Hawley said, “We have been in contact with these Missourians, many of whom were trying to help and spread the gospel on a mission trip. My staff and I continue to do everything we can to bring them home immediately.”
The State Department has been advising U.S. citizens to find a place to stay in country and register at step.state.gov. Doing so provides the federal agency with updated contact information for travelers and is the most effective way to communicate any updates to them. Constituents are also advised to monitor the websites of embassies and other country-specific information on travel.state.gov. Constituents are encouraged to reach out to Senator Hawley’s staff in Washington, D.C. and Missouri for further guidance and assistance.
