While some experts argue that travel bans are not effective against curbing the spread of Omicron, other countries such as Hong Kong have banned international travel from 8 different countries, including the U.S. Now the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made a new recommendation for travelers in the U.S. — to one of our closest neighboring countries.

As reported by Reuters, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the U.S. State Department, have both advised Americans to avoid traveling to Canada as COVID-19 cases spread. This comes after the U.S. relaxed border restrictions for travelers from Canada and Mexico back in November.

Canada is now ranked as “Level Four: Very High” by the CDC, which means traveling there is not recommended at this time. Currently, there are 80 other worldwide destinations also ranked at Level Four. The CDC recommends that anyone visiting a Level Three destination should be fully vaccinated.

  1. This hilarious as the percentage of Canadians with one needle, two and three is higher than in the U.S.

    And by population the number of COVID 19 cases in Canada is far less than in the U.S.

    There appears to be a political, rather than science based, reason for this recommendation.

    If the CDC was in another country, the U.S. would be even higher on their list of countries not to travel to than Canada is.
