The Facts

On Monday, the CDC added Mexico, New Caledonia, and the United Arab Emirates to its “high” COVID-19 risk category for travelers.
The CDC’s COVID-19 travel recommendations categorize destinations into different “risk assessment levels,” including Level Unknown, Level 1, 2, and 3 with “low,” “moderate,” and “high” COVID-19 risk and a Level 4 “Special Circumstances/Do Not Travel” category.
The “Level 3: COVID-19 High” category is for destinations that have reported over 100 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days.
The CDC recommends that citizens ensure they are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines before traveling to Level 3 destinations. The CDC advises, “If you are not up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, avoid travel to these destinations.”
Along with those mentioned above, other countries in the Level 3 category include Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, and the UK, among others.
