Americans with 2 COVID vaccine doses can travel, CDC says

The CDC Has Announced New Guidelines For Fully Vaccinated Travelers JUST IN: CDC Announces Fully Vaccinated People are Cleared to Travel

"There's several new babies in our family and it's just killing everybody that we haven't been able to get together and to see them", she said.

The U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday said people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely travel at "low risk" but still did not recommend Americans doing so because of high coronavirus cases nationwide.

"Travel and tourism is the industry hardest hit by the economic fallout of COVID, and the damage is so severe that a broader economic recovery will stall if we can't get travel off the ground", he said.

Fully vaccinated people who are traveling internationally do not need to be tested for COVID-19 before leaving the United States unless their destination requires them to be, and they do not need to self-quarantine upon arriving in the country, federal health officials said.

The 101,804,762 people who have received at least one dose represents more than 30 per cent of the United States population, according to CDC data.

JUST IN: CDC Announces Fully Vaccinated People are Cleared to Travel

For worldwide travel, a test is not required before travel, but travelers should be tested before returning to the United States and again a few days after their return, the CDC recommends. They do not need to quarantine.

But CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told reporters that, despite the new guidance for vaccinated people, now was still not a good time to take a trip. Our guidance reiterates that all travelers, regardless of vaccination status, should continue to wear masks on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation while traveling.

"We're scheduled to go to Mexico in May so any restrictions that are lifted will be better", said Edgar Saborit after he received his first dose of the vaccine.

"We know that right now we have a surging number of cases". Although traffic remains down by almost half from a year ago, more than 1 million travelers daily have been going through US airports in recent weeks.
