Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said at a White House briefing last Friday: “For example, fully vaccinated grandparents can fly to visit healthy grandchildren without COVID-19 testing or self-isolation, as long as they follow Other recommended preventive measures are fine.”.
The CDC and Los Angeles County officials both advise travelers to continue to wear masks on public transportation, and urge travelers to maintain social distancing and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer frequently.
The CDC still urges people who have not been vaccinated to postpone travel because “travel increases your chances of spreading and spreading COVID-19.”
