The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention dropped their recommendation Friday that U.S. travelers avoid Mexico because of the flu outbreak.

The Travel Health Warning recommending against non-essential travel to Mexico, which went into effect April 27, is “downgraded to a Travel Health Precaution for Mexico,” the health agency said Friday in a bulletin on its website.

The update adds that “there is evidence that the Mexican outbreak (of the H1N1 virus infection) is slowing down in many cities, though not all. In addition, the United States and other countries are now seeing increasing numbers of cases not associated with travel to Mexico. Finally, the risk of severe disease from novel H1N1 virus infection now appears to be less than originally thought.”
