The sunny shores of Aruba may have to wait. The Centers for Disease Control Prevention is urging Americans to “avoid travel to Aruba” due to a “very high level of COVID-19.”
Its new “Level 4” ranking signifies more than 500 new COVID cases per 100,000 people in the population over the past 28 days.
The CDC said in a Travel Health Notice posted that because of the current situation in Aruba, even fully vaccinated travellers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants.
In late November, the CDC and State Department had urged Americans to “reconsider travel to Aruba” due to COVID conditions in the Caribbean island nation.
In recent months the CDC has also discouraged travel to Trinidad and Tobago and the Cayman Islands, as well as numerous destinations across Europe and Africa.
