The US State Department has issued a warning to US citizens not to travel to Serbia, Afghanistan, Albania, Belize, Lithuania and four other destinations due to the worsening situation with COVID-19. The same warning was issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The countries for which the alert was issued belong to the 4th-grade countries where there has been a significant prevalence of the virus. A State Department document points out that the risk of infection and the development of more severe symptoms is lower if a person is fully vaccinated with one of the vaccines approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The Centres have issued a level 4 alert for nine destinations, stating that travel to those countries should be avoided. In addition to Serbia and Grenada, these include St Kitts and Nevis, Slovenia and Mauritius.
In mid-August, the State Department had issued a recommendation to US citizens not to travel to Montenegro for the same reason. As part of the recommendations for international travel, which the State Department regularly issues based on health and safety conditions in countries around the world, the alert level for Montenegro was raised from level three to level four, the highest level.
The highest level of alert for Montenegro was issued in mid-February due to the spread of the coronavirus.
