The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday advised against travel to 22 nations and territories due to a rising number of Covid-19 cases, including for Israel, Australia, Egypt, Albania, Argentina and Uruguay.
The CDC elevated its travel recommendation to “Level Four: Very High,” telling Americans they should avoid travel to those destinations, among others.
Panama, Qatar, the Bahamas, Bahrain, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos Islands, Suriname, Saint Lucia and Bolivia, were also among the countries named.
In total, the CDC now lists just over 100 countries and territories at “Level 4.”
The CDC also raised another 20 countries to “Level 3: High,” including Uganda, Kuwait, Jamaica, Costa Rica and Cuba.
The CDC recommends that unvaccinated Americans avoid nonessential travel to those destinations.
