Yes, but only if they maintain strict health precautions while there. It is very important for travelers to know how the virus is transmitted so that they can take necessary measures to protect themselves.
People usually get coronavirus from talking with an infected person or by touching something contaminated with the virus and then putting their hands in their eyes, noses, or mouths. Virus particles are also found in droppings left by infected animals. Someone who is not infected could also get sick if they are in close contact with someone with coronavirus.
The best way to prevent spreading coronavirus is by staying home if you are sick and not going out to see friends or travel anywhere.
Coronavirus symptoms include: fever, cough, shortness of breath. Severe cases may also have more serious problems like low blood pressure, heart failure, and lung damage.

The coronavirus first appeared in China in December 2019 but only recently started spreading outside of Asia. It causes the respiratory disease known as COVID-19 and can be spread through contact with droppings left by infected animals or people with cold symptoms. There is no specific treatment for COVID-19 but doctors are working to develop one. For now, individuals at risk of developing more serious complications should take measures to prevent the infection from spreading. This includes staying away from others (especially vulnerable groups such as older people and those with chronic conditions) and cleaning surfaces regularly using a household disinfectant.
In terms of safety, Russia is a relatively safe country to travel to. Crime against tourists is rare. Violence against foreigners is even rarer.

With a few exceptions, the Russian Federation's government has prohibited foreign persons, including American citizens, from entering the country. Under the current Covid-19 guidelines, US nationals with a tourist visa who have family members in Russia (spouse, children, parents, etc.) are normally not allowed to enter. However many embassies and consulates have begun issuing special permits to such individuals under the "Visa on Arrival" program.
There is no specific prohibition against Americans visiting Russia as tourism. However, any travel by American citizens within Russia is strictly limited and requires a valid visa or residence permit.

Americans can visit Russia as tourists if they have a valid passport, a confirmed return flight home, and proof of health insurance. It is important to note that anyone who has been to an area where Covid-19 is present should not travel to Russia. The government has put out warnings about certain areas of the world being affected by the virus. These include China, Italy, and Iran.
Some countries may restrict visitors from certain regions of Russia. For example, residents of Transnistria, a breakaway region of Moldova, are not permitted to enter Ukraine. Similarly, people living in Abkhazia and South Ossetia cannot enter Georgia.
