Earlier this month, Rabat suspended air links with Russia for the same reason.
Britain on Tuesday said it was monitoring a sub-variant of the Delta strain of the novel coronavirus, seen in a growing number of cases in the country.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesman said the government was keeping a "close eye" on the AY.4.2 variant but said there was no evidence it spreads more easily.
Overall infection rates in Britain remain stubbornly high, despite high rates of vaccination.
Infection rates in Germany and the Netherlands have risen recently.
Morocco, a country of around 30 million people, has officially recorded more than 940,000 Covid-19 cases and more than 14,500 deaths.
