US raises travel alert for Singapore to highest risk level

The United States Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has added Singapore to its list of “very high” risk travel destinations.

Under its Travel Notices, the CDC raised Singapore to Level 4, its highest risk category, from Level 3 previously.

The notice cited: “Level 4: Very High Level of Covid-19 in Singapore.” The notice asked US residents to “avoid travel to Singapore”.

“If you must travel to Singapore, make sure you are fully vaccinated before travel.

“Because of the current situation in Singapore, even fully vaccinated travellers may be at risk for getting and spreading Covid-19 variants,” the CDC said.

It asked travellers to “follow recommendations or requirements in Singapore, including wearing a mask and staying six feet (1.83m) apart from others”.

The CDC announcement followed a statement on Monday by the US State Department urging against travel to Singapore due to Covid-19. — The Straits Times/ANN
