U.S. officials have advised against travel to Canada because of an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) raised Canada to ‘Level Four: Very High’ in its travel recommendations. This means Americans should avoid travelling to Canada.
There are more than 80 countries with Level Four status in the U.S.
Canada is currently in the grip of a new wave of COVID-19, as the Omicron variant spreads rapidly among the provinces.
Hospitalisations are at or near record highs in a number of provinces, including Ontario and Quebec.
Provincial health officials are racing to administer as many booster shots of the COVID-19 vaccine as possible to nullify the impact of the variant.
As of December 15, Canada’s federal government is advising against all non-essential travel outside Canada due to the Omicron variant.
