CDC designates Sri Lanka as ‘very high risk’ country Featured

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned against travel to Sri Lanka, Jamaica and Brunei due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in the countries.

The CDC raised its travel advisory to “Level 4: Very High” for the three countries, telling Americans they should avoid travel there.

However, the CDC eased its ratings for the Netherlands, Malta, Guinea-Bissau and United Arab Emirates from “Level 4: Very High” to “Level 3: High,” which urges unvaccinated Americans to avoid travel to those destinations.

The CDC also raised Australia from “Leve1 1: Low” to “Level 2: Moderate.”

About 80 destinations have been listed by the CDC as “Level 4: Very High” risk countries, including some U.S. territories.
