CDC adds seven destinations to list of ‘very high’ Covid-19 travel risks – .


(CNN) — France and Iceland are among the seven destinations added to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s highest travel risk category on Monday.
Travel should be avoided to places marked “Level 4: Very high Covid-19,” according to CDC guidelines. Anyone who needs to travel should first be fully vaccinated, the agency advises.

• Aruba
• Swaziland (anciennement Swaziland)
• France
• French Polynesia
• Iceland
• Israel
• Thailand

In its broader travel guidelines, the CDC advises against all international travel until you are fully immunized.

“Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to contract and spread Covid-19. However, international travel poses additional risks, and even fully vaccinated travelers could be at increased risk of contracting and possibly spreading certain variants of Covid-19, ”the agency said.

Destinations that fall into the “very high” risk category have recorded more than 500 cases per 100,000 population in the past 28 days, according to CDC settings.

CDC maintains an evolving list of travel advisories from Level 1 (“low”) to Level 4 (“very high”). Last week, the agency added 16 destinations to its “very high” risk category, including Greece, Ireland and the US Virgin Islands.
