Safety and Risk

The CDC and Department of State provide risk assessments and safety ratings for all countries.  The CDC’s assessment is vaccination, health and COVID-19 focused, whereas the Department of State is broad based.  WSU recommends caution and careful planning when traveling to a country with a Level 3 rating from the Department of State, especially where the rating is due to more than COVID-19. 

WSU strongly recommends against traveling to Level 4 countries.  Level 4 is rated as “Do Not Travel” by the Department of State.
