U.S. Adds Haiti to Highest COVID-19 Travel Warning Level
Updated: Aug 25
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention raised six more destinations to its highest travel warning level on Monday, including Haiti.
The agency raised Haiti to a "Level 4," warning travelers they should avoid heading to the island nation, especially if they are unvaccinated.
Similarly, the Department of State issued a travel advisory on Monday mirroring the CDC's message.
"Because of the current situation in the country, even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants," the CDC wrote in its advisory.
"Travelers should follow recommendations or requirements in Haiti, including wearing a mask and staying 6 feet apart from others."
In addition to Haiti, the CDC raised five more destinations to "Level 4": the Bahamas, Kosovo, Lebanon, Morocco, and Sint Maarten.
