The COVID travel advisory list has been updated with the addition of four new locations (Namibia)
In light of the latest COVID-19 data, the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) has included an additional four sites on its list of “high-risk” places to visit.
On Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) designated the countries of Guyana, Namibia, Mongolia, and St. Kitts and Nevis as all posing a Level 3 travel risk. They had previously been assigned a risk level of Level 2, which is synonymous with “moderate.”
Before you go to any of these locations, check to see whether you have received all your COVID-19 vaccination doses. (CDC)-the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a warning concerning Level 3 locales, stating that individuals should “consider avoiding travel to these areas” if they had not completed their COVID-19 vaccine doses.
In order for a country to be classified as a Level 3 or high-risk location, it should be having more than 100 plus new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population in the most recent 28-day period.
“Special Circumstances/Do Not Travel” is the name given to the level 4 advisory. At the moment, there are no places included on the list.
In April, the agency removed all locations from the Level 4 risk category and announced that it is going to reserve “Level 4” warnings for special situations like fast escalation of case trajectory or very high case counts, the spread of a new variant of high concern, or collapse of healthcare service systems.
The statement went on to say that with the new categorization, travelers would have time for planning as to when they should not be traveling to a certain place (Level 4), irrespective of vaccination status, until such time, when a clearer picture of the COVID-19 situation of that place emerges.
According to statistics released by the CDC as of Monday, the number of cases in the United States is on a trajectory that is slightly higher, averaging more than 98,000 on a daily basis throughout the country.
