Covid-19: U.S. withdraws Morocco from list of high-risk destinations
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its list of Covid-19 risk countries, withdrawing Morocco from “high” risk destinations for travelers (Level 3).
For the American Health authorities, the North African Kingdom is no longer a high-risk destination for travel, placing it in “Level 2”, a moderate risk category given to countries which reported 50 to 100 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days.
Level 3 locations account for more than half the 235 worldwide places monitored by the CDC which has overhauled its ratings system for assessing Covid-19 risk for travelers.
The 3-level designation applies to places that have had more than 100 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days. Level 2 and Level 1 are considered “moderate” and “low” risk, respectively.
