Sumary of CDC: Germany And Denmark Get ‘Avoid Travel’ Warning Due To Covid-19:
- With the holiday season approaching, Germany and its traditional Christmas markets get hit with the CDC’s Level 4 travel health notice.
- getty This week two more major European tourist destinations — Germany and Denmark — were upgraded to a Level 4 travel health notice by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Last week, the CDC expanded its list of destinations under Level 4 warnings to include the Czech Republic, Guernsey, Hungary and Iceland.
- All told, 13 European countries were added to the United States’ “avoid travel” list in the past four weeks.
- The highest of four risk categories, a Level 4 travel health notice signifies that a country is reporting more than 500 new Covid-19 infections per 28 days per 100,000 people.
- That level of infection is deemed to present a “very high” Covid-19 risk and Americans are warned to “avoid travel,” per CDC guidance.
