CANADA ADDED TO AMERICAN `DO NOT TRAVEL' LIST
The U.S. State Department has added Canada to its “Level Four: Do Not Travel” advisory list of nations. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for Canada due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in the country,” a notice to Americans reads. The State Department has added about 100 countries since Tuesday, noting Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Mexico, Germany and others on the list have a “very high level of COVID-19.”
On Monday, the State Department said it would boost the number of countries receiving its highest advisory rating to approximately 80 per cent of countries worldwide to rely more on U.S. health officials existing assessments.
