Vaccinated people can resume travel at 'low risk', U.S. CDC says

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued new guidance on Friday that people that are fully vaccinated can safely travel at "low risk". They do not need to quarantine after returning to the United States unless required to do so by local ordinances.

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.

It's still recommended, however, that individuals who are not fully vaccinated have their Easter dinner and egg hunts with only the people in their household or outdoors while 6 feet apart to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the CDC said.

A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of vaccine, the CDC said. Already, the agency had said fully vaccinated people could visit with each other indoors without wearing masks or social distancing. At the time, the CDC didn't change its travel recommendations. The CDC discourages non-essential domestic travel by those who are unvaccinated. However, all air passengers coming into the US must have a negative coronavirus test result from no more than three days before their travel date.

With the updated ICU numbers and the climbing COVID-19 cases in the province, Soucy says that Ontario is now in its third wave. Saskatchewan is the runner up with 14.9 per cent, followed by Alberta with 14.6 and Ontario with 13.9.

According to the state's travel advisory, all travelers should get tested one to three days before starting their journeys, and nonessential travelers should get tested three to five days upon arrival into California and self-quarantine for a full seven days after travel, even if their test is negative.

Unvaccinated people are still advised to avoid unnecessary travel. Walensky warned this week that Americans can't abandon mitigation efforts, saying she is scared of "impending doom" as a fourth wave begins to crest.
