US citizens have been warned against traveling to the UK as Covid cases are on the rise.

The US placed the UK on its highest travel alert level on Monday as virtually all legal Covid restrictions were lifted during Britain’s ‘Freedom Day’.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has classified the country as ‘Level 4: Very High’, warning that even fully vaccinated travelers could be at risk.

Brazil, South Africa and the Netherlands are among the countries that have been classified below the highest level.

Prior to Monday, the UK was on Level 3 since May, which advised passengers to get two shots before travelling, while unvaccinated people should avoid nonessential travel.

Americans have now been told to ‘avoid traveling to the UK’ – but they must be vaccinated twice if their travel is necessary.

The guidance adds: ‘Due to the current situation in the UK, even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk of catching and spreading Covid-19 variants.’

The move would deal a blow to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who has been trying to negotiate a UK-US travel corridor with President Joe Biden.
