(CNN) — If you're planning to travel to Turkey, here's what you'll need to know and expect if you want to visit during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Turkey is currently enduring high numbers of Covid cases as the omicron variant continues to spread around the country. The county is largely open to visitors but the US government and others currently advise against travel there. Restrictions such as mandatory mask wearing in all indoor and outdoor spaces are in force.

With thriving cities, spectacular ancient ruins and monuments and landscapes ripe for exploration -- plus spectacular beaches -- Turkey has long been a favorite among tourists looking for an idyllic summer getaway.

All Covid restrictions to entering Turkey have been lifted.
What's the Covid situation?
Turkey's death toll stands at 99,341, with more than 15.9 million cases registered. The country has fully vaccinated just under 63% of the population as of August 4.
US CDC travel advisory
Level 3: Covid-19 high. Make sure vaccinations are up to date before traveling.
What can visitors expect?
Turkey returned to relative normality last year. Shops are now open, as are cafes and restaurants. Masks are no longer mandatory in indoor and outdoor public spaces provided they're well ventilated and there's adequate social distancing.
