CDC Moves Greece, Ireland and Other Destinations to High Covid Risk Category
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) moved 16 destinations to its highest Covid-19 risk level on Monday. Greece, Ireland, US Virgin Islands and Curaçao are included among others.
The top category of “Level 4: Covid-19 Very High” means that people should avoid travel to these locations. Those who must travel should be fully vaccinated first as per the CDC. But even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants.
The following 16 destinations were upgraded to Level 4 this week:
- Isle of Man
- Saint Barthelemy
- Saint Martin
- US Virgin Islands
The CDC also recommends against international travel in general until you are fully vaccinated. “The COVID-19 situation, including the spread of new or concerning variants, differs from country to country,” the CDC says. “All travelers need to pay close attention to the conditions at their destination before traveling.” You can see all the recent CDC updates here.
