Since it’s almost weekly since the end of summer, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated their “avoid travel” list. Four countries have been added to the list of Tier 4 countries that the CDC advises US travelers to avoid.

On November 1, the CDC added Belgium, Burkina Faso, Russia and Slovakia to its list of Level 4 countries. The levels in the CDC system run from 1 to 4, with the highest level containing countries and territories that travelers are advised to avoid due to the risk of infection and spread of the COVID-19 virus.

At level 3, CDC language moves from saying that Americans should “fully vaccinate before travel” and that unvaccinated travelers “should avoid non-essential travel to this destination.” When the country rises to level 4, the CDC suggests “avoid travel to this destination.”

Countries can move up and down the CDC system as the COVID-19 situation changes. Recent additions to Tier 4 have included Ukraine, Singapore, Belarus, Moldova, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Additionally, on November 1, the CDC moved Fiji, Jamaica, Laos, and Poland to Level 3. Guinea and the Marshall Islands moved to Level 1.

If you need to travel to locations with warnings, it is suggested that you take precautions such as wearing a face covering in public and social distancing. In addition, the CDC recommends viral testing for unvaccinated individuals one to three days before the flight, as well as wearing a face covering, avoiding crowds, and washing hands regularly.
