CDC ranks BVI as having low level of COVID-19 amid spike

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has ranked the Virgin Islands as a low-risk COVID-19 destination in its latest travel advisory update.

The four-tier risk assessment system advises American citizens on the level of precaution they need to take while visiting various countries across the globe. Under the ranking system, a Level 4 ranking represents a “very high level” of the COVID-19 a jurisdiction. Level 3 is classified as “high”, while Level 2 and Level 1 are “moderate”, and “low”, respectively.

The travel advisory ranking, which was updated on December 30, ranks the Virgin Islands low despite a surge in cases in the last three weeks.

“Make sure you are fully vaccinated before traveling to the British Virgin Islands. Travellers should follow recommendations or requirements in the British Virgin Islands, including wearing a mask and staying 6 feet apart from others,” the advisor reads.
