Event: The Department of State updated the Travel Advisory for Denmark from Level 4 (Do Not Travel) to Level 3 (Reconsider Travel) on June 8. The advisory level for Denmark was changed because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changed its underlying methodology for its science-based Travel Health Notices (THNs) that outline current issues affecting travelers’ health. This methodological change resulted in changes to a large number of THN levels worldwide. The Department of State is closely monitoring health and safety conditions across the globe, and will continue to update our destination-specific information for U.S. travelers as conditions evolve.
The text of the updated Travel Advisory for Denmark is below.
