The CDC has moved several Caribbean countries' Covid travel advisories to Level 1 classification, which signifies the lowest risk level for Covid.

Level 1 countries include those like Australia and New Zealand, both having reported fewer than 50 Covid-19 cases in the 28 days ending June 14. The CDC had earlier this month removed several countries from its highest risk rating.

Level 1 countries carry a recommendation from the CDC to "make sure you are fully vaccinated."

Newest Level 1, lowest-risk Caribbean destinations include Saba and the British Virgin Islands as of June 14; Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St. Barts and the Turks and Caicos as of June 7; St. Eustatius, Grenada and St. Kitts and Nevis as of last month. Montserrat and the Cayman Islands are also at Level 1, although their borders are not yet open.

The majority of the remaining Caribbean countries are classified as Level 2, moderate risk, and Level 3, high risk. In fact, unvaccinated travelers will not be allowed to enter Anguilla after July 1.
