The US CDC tells Americans to avoid traveling to Canada


WASHINGTON – The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised on Monday not to travel to Canada because of the increasing number of Covid-19 cases.

The CDC raised its travel recommendation for Canada to “Level Four: Very High”, telling Americans that they should avoid traveling to its northern neighborhood. The CDC currently lists about 80 locations worldwide in the fourth stage. It lifted Curacao Island to the fourth stage on Monday.

In November, the United States lifted restrictions on completely vaccinated foreign nationals on its land border with Canada and Mexico, ending historic restrictions on unavoidable travelers who have been in force since March 2020 to address the COVID-19 epidemic.

Canada is one of the top foreign destinations for Americans.

The Canadian government did not immediately respond Monday.

Last month, the Canadian government appealed to residents not to leave the country for unnecessary travel.

In March 2020, Canada advised residents not to travel abroad for unavoidable reasons, such as tourism. Before the first Omicron cases were reported – it withdrew notice in October, citing the success of the vaccine campaign.

The CDC slashed Monday’s travel recommendations from Level Four to “Level 3: High” for Armenia, Belarus, Lesotho and Zimbabwe. It rated Singapore as “Level 3”, which was later listed as unknown.

The CDC says Americans must be vaccinated thoroughly before traveling to Stage 3 destinations.

According to Monday’s lbl calculation, COVID-19 hospitalizations in the United States reached 132,646, surpassing the previous record of 132,051 established in January last year, amid a surge in the highly contagious Omicron transformation.
