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

Developed in collaboration with the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the new frames let you share support for the vaccinations and see who else has received theirs.

The CDC's updated travel ordinance said that those fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus "are less likely to get and spread COVID-19".

Anyone who's been holding off on trying to get a COVID vaccine may now have a new incentive. A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last required dose of vaccine.

In addition, the agency's updated guidance says that fully vaccinated people do not need COVID-19 tests before global travel unless it is required by their destination and vaccinated people returning from worldwide destinations do not need to self-quarantine upon their return, unless required by state or/and local authorities.

USA air travel has begun rebounding - 1.6 million people passed through TSA checkpoints on Thursday, well above the 124,000 who did so a year before yet still below the 2.4 million from the same day in 2019.

On Friday, the CDC announced that vaccinated Americans could travel safely in the nation without having to quarantine or get tested for COVID-19.

- Fully vaccinated people do not need to self-quarantine after returning to the United States, unless required by a state or local jurisdiction. The agency noted the potential introduction of virus variants and differences in vaccine coverage around the world for the cautious guidance on overseas travel. However, it urged vaccinated Americans to keep wearing masks in public and to avoid crowds. The agency cited "recent studies" of real-world evidence proving vaccines work outside of a clinical trial environment. It said fully vaccinated people can gather privately together without masks, or visit one un-vaccinated household - such as vaccinated grandparents visiting the home of a child and grandchildren.
