Canada travel ill-advised: CDC

Posted

The CDC continues to advise Americans not to travel to Canada, even if vaccinated. The agency issued its highest Covid-19 alert for travelers on April 2, advising that Covid-19 levels in Canada were at Level 4: Very High. The advisory stated that travelers should avoid all travel to Canada and that “because of the current situation even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading Covid-19 variants and should avoid all travel” to the country. The CDC currently advises against traveling to 80 percent of countries around the world.

It further advised that if individuals must travel to Canada, they should get vaccinated and wear a mask, stay six feet away from others, avoid crowds and wash their hands. Canada’s vaccination efforts have lagged behind other Western nations; and especially in comparison to the U.S.
