CDC Adds 15 Destinations to Highest Risk Category

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has moved five popular Caribbean island destinations into its highest-risk travel category for Covid-19.

In total, the CDC moved 15 destinations to Level 4, which means “very high” risk. That includes:

  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • Dominican Republic
  • Fiji
  • Guadeloupe
  • Jamaica
  • Kuwait
  • Mongolia
  • Niger
  • Peru
  • Romania
  • Saint Barthélemy
  • Saint Martin
  • Tunisia
  • United Arab Emirates

Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, the British Virgin Islands, Curaçao and Turks and Caicos are other Caribbean destinations that are popular with Americans, and are already at Level 4.

The top risk category, “Level 4: Very high level of COVID-19”, now has almost 120 destinations. 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.
