(Valentin Valkov/Adobe Stock) The CDC revised its classification system in April to assess the risk of COVID-19 to travelers. Level 3, or “high,” is now the highest tier in terms of risk level and applies to places that have had more than 100 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days. Levels 2 and 1 are considered “moderate” and “low” risk, respectively. Level 4, previously the highest risk category, is now reserved for only special circumstances, such as extremely high case counts, the emergence of a new variant of concern, or the collapse of health infrastructure. With the new system, no destinations have been placed on Tier 4 so far. In a weekly update with little movement overall, Monday’s move to Tier 3 is a big jump for Kuwait, which had been on Tier 1. The Dominican Republic moved up from Tier 2. As of June 27, there were nearly 115 destinations in Tier 3. Destinations on the Tier 3 list represent nearly half of the approximately 235 locations monitored by the CDC. More countries in Tier 3 Much of Europe has remained stubbornly in Tier 3 for months, with the summer travel season in full swing. As of June 27, the following popular European destinations were among those remaining in Tier 3: Germany Spain France Greece Ireland Italy Norway Netherlands Portugal United Kingdom Tour boats offer magnificent views of Istanbul.

Other destinations around the world that are in the “high” risk category include: Brazil Canada South Korea Coast Rica Malaysia Mexico Thailand Turkey The CDC advises that you be up-to-date with your COVID-19 vaccination before traveling to a Tier 3 destination. Being “up-to-date” means you have received both your initial vaccination schedule, as well as any boosters eligible.

The CDC added four places to this tier on Monday: Saudi Arabia Colombia Iraq Russia The change was not good news for Colombia, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, which were at Tier 1. Although Russia dropped from Tier 3 on the risk list Due to covid-19 from the CDC, the US State Department has a “Level 4: Do Not Travel” warning on the nation due to its invasion of Ukraine.
This week there are a total of 21 destinations in the “moderate” risk category. You can check the CDC’s risk levels for any global destination on the agency’s travel advice page. In its broader travel guidance, the CDC has recommended avoiding all international travel until fully vaccinated. Level 1 The Taj Mahal is the most iconic structure in India.

On June 27, no new destinations were added to this category. Some of the most popular places in the “low” risk category this week are Indonesia, India and the Philippines. Unknown Finally, there are the destinations that the CDC considers to be of “unknown” risk due to lack of information. These are usually, but not always, small, remote places or places with ongoing wars or riots.
This week the rarely visited Djibouti, in the Horn of Africa, was added to this category. The CDC advises against traveling to these places precisely because the risks are unknown. Other destinations in this category that tend to attract more attention from tourists are French Polynesia, Macau and the Maldives. A medical expert weighs in on risk levels Transmission rates are just “a benchmark” for estimating travelers’ personal risk, according to Dr. Leana Wen, a CNN medical analyst. We have entered “a phase of the pandemic where people have to make their own decisions based on their medical circumstances as well as their risk tolerance for contracting Covid-19,” said Wen, who is an emergency room doctor and professor. in health policy and management at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health. There are other factors to weigh besides transmission rates, according to Wen. “Another is what precautions are required and followed where you’re going, and the third is what you intend to do once you’re there,” she said. “Do you plan to visit a lot of attractions and go to bars indoors? That’s very different than going to a place where you plan to lie on the beach all day and not interact with anyone else. That’s very different. They are very different levels of risk “. Vaccination is the most important safety factor for travel, as unvaccinated travelers are more likely to get sick and transmit COVID-19 to others, Wen said. And it’s also important to consider what you would do if you test positive away from home. Although US-bound travelers no longer have to submit a negative COVID-19 test to return home, the CDC still advises testing before boarding flights returning to the US and do not travel if you are sick. “Of course, if people have symptoms or are exposed while traveling, they should get tested and, if positive, follow CDC isolation guidelines,” Wen told CNN Travel recently.
