Walke said 30-40% of the coronavirus' spread comes from people without symptoms, and the USA has seen an "exponential increase" in cases, hospitalizations and deaths in recent weeks.
"As we're seeing exponential growth in cases, and the opportunity to translocate disease or infection from one part of the country to another, leads to our recommendation to avoid travel at this time", Henry Walke, COVID-19 incident manager at the CDC, said in a call via CNN.
More than 1 million COVID-19 cases were reported in the United States over the last 7 days.

"CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving Day period".
Are cases high or increasing in your community, or the community of your destination?
Are hospitals in your community or the community you will be visiting overwhelmed with patients who have COVID-19? "And we don't want that to happen".
The CDC also recommends those who travel to follow all of their guidance for slowing the spread of coronavirus: wear a mask, wash hands, social distance, get the flu shot and bring extra masks and hand sanitizer.
The CDC says if the answer to any of the above is "yes", then you should delay your travel and stay home.
They urge people to wear masks when having group meals with people from different households and consider having celebrations outdoors if possible. Also, clean and disinfect touched surfaces between use.
If celebrating indoors, it recommends that Americans open windows and put fans in front of open windows to pull fresh air into the room where guests are sitting.
