CDC says vaccinated Americans can resume travel with low risk

CDC says low travel risk for fully vaccinated Travellers wearing protective face masks at the airport in Denver Colorado

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said vaccinated people do not carry the COVID-19 virus. "We are not recommending travel at this time, especially for unvaccinated individuals".

The CDC also released new guidelines that say people who have been fully vaccinated can travel with "low risk" but should still take precautions.

More than 56 million Americans are fully vaccinated already, according to the latest figures from the CDC.

As it stands, the new travel measures don't mention whether people need proof of vaccination to travel, but for now, USA airlines don't require official documentation. In the few weeks since its launch, a quarter of Facebook users have seen a friend or family member use the NHS COVID-19 profile frame according to the social network. "Vaccines can help us return to the things we love about life, so we encourage every American to get vaccinated as soon as they have the opportunity".

- Fully vaccinated people do not need to self-quarantine after returning to the United States, unless required by a state or local jurisdiction.

"We are working with consultants in infectious disease and virology to evaluate vaccination strategies and to prepare for when vaccines are made widely available to our player group", the men's tour said.

- Fully vaccinated people should continue to take COVID-19 precautions while traveling internationally.

And almost 58 million have been fully vaccinated, according to the latest figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Among the fully vaccinated, about 29.2 million people are 65 years of age or older, accounting for 53.5 per cent, CDC data show. CDC discourages non-essential domestic travel by those who are not fully vaccinated.
