The list of COVID travel advisories 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 four additional 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 Saint Kitts and Nevis as all Level 3 travel risk. had previously assigned them a level 2 risk rating, which is synonymous with “moderate”.

Before going to any of these places, check to see if you have received all your doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. (CDC) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a warning for Level 3 locations, saying individuals should “consider avoiding travel to these areas” if they have not completed their doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

For a country to be classified as Level 3 or high risk, it must have more than 100 new cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 population in the last 28-day period.

“Special Circumstances/Do Not Travel” is the name given to the Level 4 advisory. At this time, there are no locations included in the list.

In April, the agency removed all locations from the Level 4 risk category and announced that it would reserve “Level 4” warnings for specific situations such as rapidly escalating the trajectory of cases or the very high number of cases, the spread of a new variant of high concern or the collapse of health service systems.

The statement goes on to say that with the new categorization, travelers would have time to plan when they shouldn’t go to a certain place (Level 4), regardless of their vaccination status, until an image clearer of the COVID-19 situation of this place is emerging.

According to statistics released by the CDC as of Monday, the number of cases in the United States is on a slightly higher trajectory, averaging more than 98,000 a day nationwide.
