WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday eased its COVID-19 travel ratings for Saudi Arabia, Myanmar and Haiti.
The CDC said it had changed its COVID-19 travel recommendation for the three countries to “Level 1: Low” from “Level 4: Very High,” which urges Americans to avoid travel to those locations.
In recent weeks, the CDC has been easing ratings on a number of countries around the world as the COVID-19 pandemic recedes. The CDC also on Monday lowered to “Level 1” ratings for Bangladesh, Philippines, and Saint Kitts and Nevis from “Level 2: Moderate.”
