Northstar Meetings Group, August 11, 2021 - The agency now recommends that all travelers, even the fully vaccinated, avoid destinations with very high levels of Covid-19, such as France and Iceland.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its travel advisory, adding France, Iceland and Israel to the list of level-four destinations with very high incidences of Covid-19. The CDC guidance advises all travelers to avoid visiting these places. Those who must travel there should be fully vaccinated.
The CDC also recently updated its guidance for fully vaccinated people. In response to the highly contagious and fast-spreading Delta variant of the coronavirus, the organization now recommends that even fully vaccinated people wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission levels. As seen in the CDC's interactive, county-based map, this currently includes large portions of the southern United States. The CDC's data tracker and map are updated daily.
