On the eve of Singapore dropping quarantine restrictions for vaccinated travelers from the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State Department warned Americans not to visit the country.
Both the CDC and State Department cited a "very high level of COVID-19" in Singapore.
According to Johns Hopkins University data, the Southeast Asia country has had a record high 70,374 COVID cases in the last 28 days. Just over 82% of Singapore is fully vaccinated. That's compared to more than 57% of the U.S., which has recorded more than 2.8 million cases over the same period.
Starting Tuesday, travelers from the U.S. can enter Singapore as long as they show proof of vaccination and they test negative on two PCR tests: once 48 hours before departure and again upon arrival.
The State Department on Monday also urged Americans to reconsider travel to Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, Tunisia and Angola due to areas with "increased risk" of COVID-19.
