Fully vaccinated Americans can resume travel, updated CDC guidance states

NEW: CDC Issues Guidance on Travel for Fully Vaccinated People

The CDC said COVID-19 tests are won't be required for fully vaccinated people before or after they travel within the USA - as long as those travelling wear masks on planes, buses, and trains.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky said Friday the new guidance is based on studies showing the "real-world" effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines on transmission.

Facebook is launching new COVID-19 vaccine profile frames in hopes of encouraging more people to get the jab. "We are not recommending travel at this time, especially for unvaccinated individuals".

So at the end of the day, it's your decision if you expose yourself to traveling.

Americans with 2 COVID vaccine doses can travel, CDC says
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.

Until Friday's announcement, federal officials were still discouraging people from traveling, even after vaccination.

Both the ATP and the women's WTA said it recommended players accept vaccine shots when available after some at the Miami Open this week expressed a reluctance to get vaccinated. However, they would still need to take the test if the destination rules state so. During an MSNBC interview with Rachel Maddow on Monday, Walensky said: "Our data from the CDC today suggests that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don't get sick".

Air travel still remains down 43 per cet from pre-COVID levels and business and global travel remain even harder hit. The CDC also said that though fully vaccinated, the travellers should remain masked for the duration of their journey.

Here it is to be noted that Vaccinated people allowed to travel within U.S. but for worldwide travellers it is announced that travellers should have a negative Covid-19 test before they get on the plane, be tested after arrival, and must quarantine if local authorities in the United States require it, the CDC said in a statement.
