As the situation with COVID-19 continues to change and develop, AllEars will be bringing you the latest relevant news that could affect a theme park visit.
COVID-19 is still making a big impact around the world.
We’ve seen guidelines change in different places, like on cruises and for international travel. There have also been new variants that have emerged over the past several months that have caused surges in case numbers. And now, three new destinations have been added to the “high” risk category for travel when it comes to COVID-19.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention added Romania, Moldova, and St. Pierre and Miquelon to the Level 3 “high” risk categories, according to WESH. Right now, there are almost 125 destinations around the world at Level 3.
This level is for places with more than 100 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days. The other two categories are Level 2 — Moderate and Level 1 –Low.
These 3 countries join a long list that have already been at Level 3 for a while, like France, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Spain, the U.K., and more. For travel to Level 3 destinations, the CDC says you should be up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
Two new destinations have also been added to Level 2 — Moderate: Indonesia and Nepal. They were previously at Level 1. These aren’t the only changes we’ve seen to the list lately. We also saw 6 countries added to Level 3 last week.
Right now, international travelers coming back to the U.S. don’t have to provide a negative COVID-19 test to get back into the country, but when it comes to entering other countries, the requirements may vary.
Also note that some COVID-19 testing policies have been changing for cruises in the U.S., but some still have their rules in place, like Disney Cruise Line.
