    While many believe getting vaccinated means they can get back to traveling, unfortunately we are far from being out the woods when it comes to the global pandemic.

    To make matters even worse, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just added 16 destinations onto its “very high” COVID-19 risk level list — and yes, some of these locations are definitely dream vaycay spots.

    According to CNN, the development is a direct reaction to rising cases resulting from the new Delta variant of coronavirus. All 16 locations have seen more than 500 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days, giving them the unfortunate Level 4 status.

    In addition to the newly-added 16 locations, here’s a look at some that have already been deemed Level 4 status:

    — Brazil
    — Colombia
    — Costa Rica
    — Maldives
    — The Netherlands
    — Panama
    — Portugal
    — Seychelles
    — Spain
    — United Arab Emirates
    — United Kingdom

    Here’s what the agency says about what this means for those who might be trying to fit a trip into the last leg of summer 2021:

    “Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread Covid-19. However, international travel poses additional risks, and even fully vaccinated travelers might be at increased risk for getting and possibly spreading some Covid-19 variants.

    The COVID-19 situation, including the spread of new or concerning variants, differs from country to country. All travelers need to pay close attention to the conditions at their destination before traveling.”
