(News 1st): The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned against travel to Sri Lanka, Jamaica and Brunei due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in the countries.

The CDC raised its travel advisory to “Level 4: Very High” for the three countries, telling Americans they should avoid travel there.

However, the CDC eased its ratings for the Netherlands, Malta, Guinea-Bissau and United Arab Emirates from “Level 4: Very High” to “Level 3: High,” which urges unvaccinated Americans to avoid travel to those destinations.

The CDC also raised Australia from “Leve1 1: Low” to “Level 2: Moderate.”

About 80 destinations have been listed by the CDC as “Level 4: Very High” risk countries, including some U.S. territories.
