Regardless of how much many of us like to travel, engaging in such an action during the COVID-19 pandemic isn’t exactly a good idea. Some countries pose a higher risk of coronavirus infection than others, which is why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated the “Level 4: COVID-19 Very High” risk roster on its official website.

Previously, the Government agency added four destinations to its list about a week ago: Montenegro, Turkey, Jersey, and Dominica. As for now, the CDC updated the roster with other six destinations:

• Bahamas
• Sint Maarten
• Kosovo
• Morocco
• Lebanon
• Haiti
The CDC says that if you must travel to either of the destinations, you should make sure you’ve been fully vaccinated for the coronavirus.

The risk ranges from Level 1 (“Low”) to Level 4 (“Very High”)

Those destinations under the “COVID-19 Very High” mark have dealt with over 500 cases per 100,000 residents for the past 28 days. That’s enough to make anyone worried!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also said in a statement:

Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread Covid-19. However, international travel poses additional risks, and even fully vaccinated travelers might be at increased risk for getting and possibly spreading some Covid-19 variants.

Of course, the CDC doesn’t rule out the older anti-COVID measures such as wearing a mask or washing hands frequently. In fact, those actions remain highly recommended considering what experts around the world are telling us.

You never know what you can run into once you leave your country, or even in your own land. Individuals carrying the COVID-19 disease could come in contact with you from pretty much everywhere. We always have to do our best to protect ourselves and those who are close to us.
