US Issues New Travel Guide, Indonesia Enters Level 3

Jakarta

The United States through the CDC agency issued new travel guidelines for more than 120 countries. On this occasion, Indonesia is still at level 3, aka the US government asks travelers to reconsider travel plans because of the high transmission rate in Indonesia.

Reported CNN, Thursday (10/6/2021) more people are being vaccinated and the spread of Covid-19 is getting under control. Therefore, United States public health officials issued new travel guidelines.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its international travel guide on Monday. This guide is to give specific advice to travelers whether to be vaccinated and not to be vaccinated in the destination country.

This travel guide update includes moving 33 countries, including Iceland, Israel and Singapore, into the lowest risk category. They have mapped out which countries have the worst Covid-19 situation and which ones are under control.

By the CDC, the threat level is determined by the number of Covid-19 cases in a particular country. At each level, the agency recommends vaccination, but guidelines vary based on how severe the pandemic is in each country.

The country with the lowest risk, tier 1 has a low incidence of Covid-19 (less than 50 new cases per 100,000 people over the past 28 days). Or a low number of cases (less than 50 cases in countries with a population of 100,000 or less over the past 28 days).

In this travel guide update, the CDC also looks at whether cases have decreased, increased or remained stable for 28 days as a key criterion in determining threat levels. Test data is a secondary factor in determining the level of risk.

For Indonesia, which last May was set at ‘Level 4: Don’t Travel’, in an update starting Tuesday (8/6) local time, the US set Indonesia at ‘Level 3: Reconsider Traveling’ or down one level.

“Make sure you have fully vaccinated before traveling to Indonesia. Because, in the current situation, travelers can be exposed to and spread new variants of the Corona virus,” explained the CDC.
