Americans with 2 COVID vaccine doses can travel, CDC says

Fully vaccinated individuals can safely travel inside the US and internationally, the CDC said in new guidance released Friday, though they should still wear a mask when traveling on public transportation, including airplanes. Those individuals will no longer need to get tested before or after travel unless their destination requires it, and do not need to self-quarantine.

Vaccinated travelers can go overseas without getting a Covid-19 test before travel unless it is required by the worldwide destination, the new guidelines say.

The CDC says recent research on the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines indicates there is low risk to vaccinated individuals and that they can travel without a COVID-19 test or quarantining after traveling.

Signs outside indicated a handful of businesses were located there, including an insurance agent and a counselling service. Our hearts are with the families impacted by this bad tragedy tonight", California Governor Gavin Newsom said in a tweet .

Officials updated their website on Friday to reflect the latest scientific evidence, writing that "people who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine can travel safely within the United States". The agency considers someone fully vaccinated two weeks after their final shot. Additionally, they can gather with unvaccinated people without masks, but the visits should be limited to one unvaccinated household at a time. However, it urged vaccinated Americans to keep wearing masks in public and to avoid crowds. The CDC discourages non-essential domestic travel by those who are unvaccinated. They must either get tested 3-5 days after they return and self-quarantine for 7 days, or self-quarantine for 10 days with no test. Those who must travel should be tested one to three days before their flight and again three to five days after.

Add travel to the activities vaccinated Americans can enjoy again, according to new USA guidance issued Friday.
