Event: The Department of State updated the Travel Advisory for Denmark from Level 3 (Reconsider Travel) to a Level 4 (Do Not Travel) on April 21. The advisory level for Denmark was changed because the Department of State has updated our Travel Advisories to better reflect and align with the scientific and statistical data that informs the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC’s) Travel Health Notices. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for Denmark due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in country. As we improve our products to better keep U.S. citizens informed of the risks posed by COVID-19, many countries’ Travel Advisory levels will rise due to this change in methodology.
