The ultramodern city-state of Singapore has risen to level 4 from the agency’s highest risk category, level 3, or “high” risk for Covid-19.

This news comes on the heels of a recent decision of singapore to further loosen restrictions and add eight new countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States vaccination travel lane program. Fully vaccinated people arriving from those countries can apply for quarantine-free entry.

According to CDC criteria, destinations in the “Covid-19 Very High” level 4 category have had more than 500 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days.

The CDC recommends that people avoid traveling to places designated with a Level 4 notice. Anyone who must travel should be fully vaccinated first, the agency advises.
