Coronavirus: Morocco reclassified as a “high-risk country” by the United States

The kingdom has gone from “very high risk country” to “high risk country” in the ranking established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the United States.

Morocco is no longer among the “very high risk countries” in the ranking established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), affiliated with the US Department of Health and Human Services. With seven other countries, the kingdom is now included in category 3, that is, that of “high-risk countries” in terms of risks related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This improvement in the ranking is due to the significant drop in the number of new positive cases for Covid-19, declared daily in Morocco. American travelers wishing to visit Morocco, however, should make sure they are fully vaccinated, an update released on October 4.

Also, “unvaccinated travelers should avoid non-essential trips to Morocco. Due to the current situation in Morocco, all travelers may be at risk of contracting and spreading variants of Covid-19”.

The CDC note also stresses that travelers must follow “Morocco’s recommendations or requirements” in terms of protection, including wearing a mask and social distancing.

In addition to Morocco, seven countries also saw their places improved in the ranking. These are Argentina, France, Iceland, Lesotho, Nepal, Portugal and South Africa.
