WASHINGTON – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States issued a travel warning on Monday for Israel, France, Thailand, Iceland, and many other countries due to the increased number of COVID-19 cases in the respective countries.
As cases spread throughout the world, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been adding to its highest “Level 4: Very High” COVID-19 level. The United States has expanded its territory to include Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza, as well as additional locations such as Aruba and French Polynesia.
Centers for Disease Control And Prevention Advises Americans To avoid Traveling To France, Israel, And Thailand.
On Monday, the United States Department of State issued similar “Level 4: Do Not Travel” warnings for Iceland and France, as well as other countries.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expressed worries about Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza in July, raising its travel health advisory by two levels to “Level 3: High.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention raised the warning levels for Austria, Croatia, El Salvador, Azerbaijan, Guam, Kenya, and Jamaica to “Level 3: High.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, unvaccinated visitors should avoid non-essential travel to certain nations.
For the Covid-19 levels, the United States’ leading public health organization has put France, Israel, Thailand, and Iceland in its highest tier, advising Americans against traveling to those countries.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention assigned these four countries, as well as Aruba and French Polynesia, a Level 4 rating, which indicates “very high” levels of Covid-19 in the population.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) categorizes foreign travel locations as well as US territory using a four-tier classification ranging from “low” to “extremely high” levels of Covid-19.
The CDC’s action on Monday comes as Israel has reimposed limitations on public sector workers, including the use of indoor masks and the ability to work from home for half of them, in response to an increase in new illnesses caused by the more transmissible Delta strain. Israel, which is one of the world’s most heavily immunized countries, has started administering booster vaccinations to its senior population.
In an effort to slow the spread of the epidemic, France has implemented a health passport requirement for entrance into pubs, restaurants, and certain public transportation.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been issuing travel advisories concerning an increasing number of nations, most recently adding Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom, and other countries to the list last month. The Biden administration, on the other hand, has said that it is developing measures that would involve a gradual approach to allowing travel to foreign individuals who have been properly vaccinated.
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday downgraded Canada to a Level 2 rating, which is reserved for nations with “moderate” Covid-19 levels, and advised Americans to ensure they are properly vaccinated before traveling there. On the same day that Canada opened its land border to fully vaccinated Americans and permanent residents of the United States for the first time in 16 months, the United States announced a similar move.
