US Moves Israel to “Level 4 – Do Not Travel” List

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned on Monday against traveling to Israel due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases. 

The CDC has added Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, Aruba, and French Polynesia to its highest “Threshold 4: Very High” COVID-19 level as cases spread throughout the world.  

The U.S. State Department also issued its parallel “Level 4: Do Not Travel” advisories for Iceland and France on Monday.

The CDC also expressed concerns about Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza in July and it raised its travel health advisory to “Level 3: High.”

According to the CDC, unvaccinated visitors should avoid unnecessary travel to certain nations.
