The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a level 3 travel health advisory for Grenada.
Level 3 or red, means the risk assessment for Covid19 proves to be high, and travelers should avoid all non-essential travel to Grenada. It means the outbreak is of high risk to travelers, and no precautions are available to protect against the identified increased risk.
As of Tuesday, Grenada has 12 active cases of Covid19 as disclosed by Health Minister Nickolas Steele during Tuesday’s post-cabinet briefing.
When probed on Wednesday about the CDC’s rating Minister Steele said this was most likely due to the recent spike in covid19 cases in December. The minister says the report encompasses a 28 day period, which included most of December 2020.
The first time Grenada was issued a level 3 rating by CDC was in August 2020 after registering 24 Covid19 cases.
Travel Health Notices from the CDC inform travelers and clinicians about current health issues that impact travelers’ health, like disease outbreaks, special events or gatherings, and natural disasters, in destinations around the world.
