(CNN) – The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will no longer maintain a country-by-country list of travel advisories related to Covid-19, the agency said Monday.“As fewer countries are testing or reporting Covid-19 cases, CDC’s ability to accurately assess the Covid-19 THN [Travel Health Notice] levels for most destinations that American travelers visit is limited,” an agency spokesperson said in a statement to CNN Travel.Starting October 3, a notice will only be posted for a country if there is a concerning Covid-19 variant or other situation that would change the CDC’s travel recommendations.The agency said that regardless of their destination, international travelers should stay up-to-date on their Covid-19 vaccines and follow CDC guidance for international travel.Being “up-to-date” means having all doses from the primary vaccination series as well as any boosters for which you are eligible.The CDC issued its first Covid-specific travel notice for China in January of 2020.

The agency has long been updating its advisories list each Monday. ‘People need to make their own decisions’CNN Medical Analyst Dr.
