PACK YOUR BAGS: Restrictions Loosened For Fully-Vaccinated Travelers

With cases rising in some parts of the country and across the globe, the CDC "is not recommending travel at this time", said agency director Dr. Rochelle Walensky. However, the CDC had not made any move to review its guidance that discouraged all non-essential trips. Transportation Safety Administration's numbers show more than 1 million passengers have passed through airport security almost every day in March.

Not only that, but immunized travelers who are traveling domestically don't have to get a COVID test before or after travel, unless certain localities require it, and they don't have to self-quarantine.

On Friday, the CDC announced that vaccinated Americans could travel safely in the nation without having to quarantine or get tested for COVID-19.

Fully vaccinated people can start traveling again if they take precautions such as wearing a mask and observing social distancing, U.S. health authorities said Friday.


However, the TSA said it was not lifting restrictions that bar most-non USA citizens from the United States if they have recently traveled to China, Brazil, South Africa, and most of Europe.

Jacy Smith, of Shirley, says she thinks these updated guidelines will also make more people want to get vaccinated.

Until then, there remain some precautions fully vaccinated people should take in public, including wearing masks, keeping a social distance and avoiding crowds.

The United States continues to make progress in Covid-19 vaccinations, with 50 percent of Americans 65 and older fully vaccinated. According to the health authorities, the pandemic causes an average of about 1,000 deaths per day in the United States.
