US CDC asks US residents to avoid travel to Canada due to COVID rise





The United States Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has raised the COVID-19 levels to very high for travellers to Canada.


The CDC is asking all residents to avoid travel to Canada, and if you must travel to Canada to ensure that they are fully vaccinated before travel.


This increase is due to the rise in COVID-19 cases across Canada.


CDC states, "Even fully vaccinated travellers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants."


Travellers are also asked to follow recommendations and/or requirements in Canada, including wearing a mask and staying 6 feet apart from others.


Canada was not the only country to see an updated travel advisory on January 10th, Curacao also saw an increase in travel advisory.


Canada joins Aruba, Malta, Sweden, Bonaire, Chad, Finland, Gibraltar, Lebanon, Monaco, San Marino, and Spain as countries that the CDC is asking travellers to avoid over the last 30 days.
