If You're Fully Vaccinated, a New Thumbs-Up

People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely travel within the United States and overseas as long as they continue to take precautions like wearing a mask in public, according to new guidance released Friday by the the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

With cases rising in some parts of the country and across the globe, the CDC "is not recommending travel at this time", said agency director Dr. Rochelle Walensky.

Domestic travel in the U.S.is getting a green light from the Centre for Disease Control.

Reuters reported that under the new guidance fully vaccinated people will not be required to get a Covid-19 test before or after travel and will not need to self-quarantine after travel.

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

Fully vaccinated Americans can travel again, says new U.S. CDC guidance
The agency's guidance, released in March , says people who have been fully vaccinated can meet indoors without masks. Fully vaccinated people can travel within the USA , without getting tested for the coronavirus or quarantining.

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.

Jacy Smith, of Shirley, says she thinks these updated guidelines will also make more people want to get vaccinated.

A person is considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after they get their second round of Pfizer and Moderna shots, or two weeks after their Johnson & Johnson shot.

The CDC's new guidance comes as Americans gear up to travel around the country to celebrate Easter this weekend. It added that vaccinated people returning to the United States do not need to self-quarantine unless it is required by state or local authorities.
