On Monday, Norway moved into the highest-risk category on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) list of travel advisories for global destinations, CNN reports.
Norway moved up to the so-called “Level 4: COVID-19 Very High” just days after it reopened its society. At the same time, Sweden and Denmark are listed in the CDC’s Level 3 category.
According to CDC criteria, countries in the level 4 category have had more than 500 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days.
The CDC recommends that Americans avoid traveling to locations designated with a “Level 4” notice, and those who must travel should be fully vaccinated.
Almost 90 destinations are now listed as level 4. Norway was previously listed as “Level 3: COVID-19 High.”
The CDC’s travel notices range from Level 1 (“low”) to Level 4 (“very high”), CNN writes.
