Before you book that overseas trip, read the new travel advisories from the State Department.

Following guidelines from the CDC, the Department designated many destination countries at ‘Level 4: DO NOT TRAVEL.’ 80% of countries worldwide fall in this tier.

Though you may be fully vaccinated, there is still a danger of traveling to a country that doesn’t have the deadly virus under control. And you could bring back one of the COVID variants, though you might be completely asymptomatic.

As the announcement read: “The COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose unprecedented risks to travelers.”

Heed their advice.
