The U.S. CDC has raised its travel alert for seven countries to “Level 4: Very High,” advising Americans to avoid travel there.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a travel warning for Sri Lanka, Jamaica, and Brunei on Tuesday, citing an increase in Covid-19 cases.
The CDC raised its travel advisory to “Level 4: Very High” for those countries, telling Americans they should avoid travel there.
The CDC also eased its ratings for the Netherlands, Malta, Guinea-Bissau and United Arab Emirates from “Level 4: Very High” to “Level 3: High,” which urges unvaccinated Americans to avoid travel to those destinations.
The CDC also raised Australia from “Leve1 1: Low” to “Level 2: Moderate.”
In addition, the CDC raised its advisory level for Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Benin, Ghana, Grenada, Turks and Caicos Islands to “Level 3.”
The CDC issues travel recommendations by countries and for US territories but does not list recommendations for individual US states. It currently lists about 80 destinations out of around 200 ranked as “Level 4,” including some US territories.
