The US Centers for Disease Control on Monday raised its travel alert level in Israel due to rising coronavirus cases.

Israel is now listed by the CDC at Level 3, the second highest, due to the rate of new daily cases per capita.

A notice on the CDC website said travelers to Israel should be fully vaccinated and that anyone who is not should avoid non-essential trips.

“Because of the current situation in Israel, all travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants,” it said.

The notice also applies to the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
