CDC Adds More Popular European Destinations to Highest Risk Category

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has added four more European destinations to its list of “very high” risk travel destinations this week.

Iceland, Czech Republic, Hungary, and the small island nation of Guernsey were all added to the CDC’s highest risk category Monday afternoon. All were previously listed as Level 3, which means “high” risk for Covid-19.

Iceland is a popular destination is Europe, especially for Americans. KOALA, a company in Brooklyn, New York, released a list of the most in-demand vacation destinations for Americans earlier this year and Iceland made the Top 10. The Czech Republic and Hungary have also become more popular in recent years.

The top risk category, “Level 4: Very high level of COVID-19”, now has 70 countries. Americans are warned that they should “avoid travel” to countries in this category. Anyone who must travel should be fully vaccinated first, the agency advises.

Countries in the Level 4 category have had more than 500 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days. You can see the full list on the CDC website.

  1. I WAS getting excited about traveling again and just got back from France and Greece. I even booked to travel the entire summer all throughout Asia. Already bought plane tickets and hotels. But something tells me that things will turn more ominous and this nightmare will get dragged out even longer which is crazy.
