The United States Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC)has issued a Level 4 COVID-19 travel health advisory for Saint Lucia.

The agency’s  4-level system categorises destinations into four levels.

They are – Level 4: Very high level of COVID-19; Level 3: High level of COVID-19; Level 2: Moderate level of COVID-19 and Level 1: Low level of COVID-19.

The primary criteria for destinations with a population of 200,000 or less are: 1. COVID-19 case counts (cumulative new cases over the past 28 days) and 2. New case trajectory (Are new cases over the past 28 days increasing, decreasing, or stable?), the CDC says.

“Travelers should avoid all travel to Saint Lucia,” the CDC said on its official website.

The agency warned that travel increases the chance of getting and spreading COVID-19.

Nevertheless, it advised that if travel is a must, individuals must get a viral test 1-3 days before their trip.

“Do not travel if you are waiting for test results, test positive, or are sick,” the CDC stated.

“Follow all entry requirements for your destination and provide any required or requested health information,” it said.
