The US State Department has raised its travel advisory alert for Canada to Level 4 “do not travel” status amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, APA reports citing The Guardian.

The department, along with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), warned against travelling to Canada and Switzerland, among other countries because of rising Covid cases.

On Monday, Canada and Germany were moved up to Level 3 by the US state department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with potential travellers urged to “reconsider travel” owing to “a high level of Covid-19.”
