Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State Department have both advised against traveling to Antigua and Barbuda, Bermuda and Guyana due to COVID-19.
On Monday, the CDC added the destinations to its “Level 4: COVID-19 Very High” list advising against travel and recommending visitors “make sure you are fully vaccinated before travel” if they must go there.
The State Department followed suit Tuesday classifying Antigua and Barbuda, Bermuda and Guyana as “Level 4: Do Not Travel” destinations due to COVID-19.
The agency also advised travelers to exercise increased caution in Guyana due to violent crime, warning “local police lack the resources to respond effectively to serious criminal incidents.”
Additionally, the State Department advised travelers to reconsider going to New Caledonia, Sao Tome and Principe, Kuwait, Colombia, Cambodia and Bonaire for both COVID-related reasons and other reasons. It also advised exercising increased caution in Zambia because of COVID.
