The United States placed Germany, Switzerland, and several other European countries into the high-risk category for contracting the coronavirus and told non-vaccinated individuals to stay away from these locations.

“Make sure you are fully vaccinated before traveling to these destinations,” the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on its website. “Unvaccinated travelers should avoid nonessential travel to these destinations.”

Other countries just added to this category include Azerbaijan, Estonia, North Macedonia, and Saint Lucia.

Germany was previously deemed a “moderate” risk.

Meanwhile, there remain over 50 countries where the risk is “very high.” This list includes Argentina, France, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Israel, Malta, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.
