According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s regularly updated travel warnings list, the Bahamas and Morocco are now among the highest-risk countries for tourists.

The CDC advises people to stay away from places marked “Level 4: Covid-19 Very High.” The organization recommends that anybody who has to travel get completely immunized prior.

On August 23, six destinations were added to the Level 4 list:

  • Bahamas
  • Haiti
  • Kosovo
  • Lebanon
  • Morocco
  • Sint Maarten

The CDC’s ever-changing list of travel advisories spans from Level 1 (“low”) to Level 4 (“very severe”) (“very high”).

According to CDC standards, destinations in the “Covid-19 Very High” Level 4 category had had more than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 28 days. Destinations with between 100 and 500 incidents per 100,000 people in the last 28 days fall into the Level 3 group.

All six of the new Level 4 locations were previously classified as “Level 3: Covid-19 High.”

On Saturday, August 21, the Bahamas’ prime minister imposed a pandemic curfew on mainland Exuma, Abaco and the Abaco Cays, as well as North, Central, and South Andros, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. During the recovery operations following the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that rocked Haiti’s southwest on August 14, the country’s prime minister warned residents to be aware of the Covid-19 danger.

On Monday, ten more destinations were moved to the “Level 3: Covid-19 High” category. Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Brunei, and Liechtenstein have been promoted from level one to level two. Bulgaria and Serbia have been demoted to level two. The status of Greenland and Guernsey has been updated from “unknown.” Paraguay was demoted from level four.

Unvaccinated tourists should avoid visiting countries on Level 3 according to CDC recommendations.

The CDC recommends deferring all foreign travel until you are completely immunized in its broader travel advice.

“Travelers who have been fully vaccinated are less likely to contract Covid-19 and transmit it. International travel, on the other hand, offers extra dangers, and even fully vaccinated travelers may be at higher risk of contracting and perhaps transmitting certain Covid-19 strains “According to the FDA.
