The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention has placed Cameroon on level 4 on the level system categorization. This means all travellers should avoid travel to Cameroon. This is because even fully vaccinated travellers may be contracting or spreading COVID 19 variants.

If you must travel to Cameroon,

  • Get fully vaccinated before you travel
  • Wear a mask
  • Stay 2 meters from others
  • avoid crowds
  • wash your hands and avoid touching your face

The 4-level system categorizes destinations, including international destinations and United States Territories, into the following levels:

  • Level 4: Very high level of COVID-19
    • Travellers should avoid all travel to these destinations.
  • Level 3: High level of COVID-19
    • Travellers should avoid all nonessential travel to these destinations.
  • Level 2: Moderate level of COVID-19
  • Level 1: Low level of COVID-19

The CDC uses COVID-19 data reported by the World Health Organization and other official sources to make determinations about THN levels. If a destination does not provide data, their THN level is designated as “unknown” and travellers are advised to follow THN Level 4 recommendations.

Travel Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated Travelers

If you are fully vaccinated:

  • You do NOT have to get tested before leaving the United States, unless your destination requires it.
  • You do NOT have to self-quarantine after you arrive in the United States.

During travel:

  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public. Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation travelling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
  • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who is not travelling with you.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).

  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
