New York-According to the new American guidelines released on Friday, trips to activities that vaccinated Americans can safely enjoy again have been added.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidelines to stipulate that fully vaccinated people can travel in the United States without undergoing a coronavirus test or subsequent isolation.
Despite this, Dr. Rochelle Varensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, still urged caution and stated that in view of the increasing number of infections, she would “fully advocate general travel.”
She said: “If you are vaccinated, the risk is lower.”
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 100 million people (about 30% of the population) in the United States have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Two weeks after receiving the last required dose, a person is considered fully vaccinated.
The agency said it will vaccinate more people and provide evidence of the protection provided by the vaccine, which will update its guidelines.
Dr. Ali Khan, Dean of the School of Public Health at the University of Nebraska, said: “Every day you will get more data and you will change your guidance.”
The CDC adheres to the guidance of people who have not been vaccinated to avoid unnecessary travel. The agency stated that if they do travel, they will be checked one to three days before the trip and three to five days after the trip. The agency said that even if their COVID-19 test results are negative, people should stay at home and quarantine for 7 days after traveling.
The new guide says:
-People who are fully vaccinated can travel in the United States without undergoing coronavirus or isolation testing. The agency stated that people should still wear masks, maintain social distancing, and avoid crowds.
—For international travel, the agency stated that unless required by the destination country, vaccinated people do not need to be tested for COVID-19 before leaving.
—For passengers coming to the United States, the vaccinated person should still undergo a negative test for COVID-19 before boarding the plane and be tested three to five days after arrival. They do not need to be isolated. The agency pointed out that for prudent travel guides abroad, virus variants may be introduced and vaccine coverage may be expanded globally.
Air travel in the United States has begun to pick up. Although traffic is still down by nearly half from a year ago, more than 1 million passengers have passed through US airports every day in recent weeks.
Airline does not require COVID-19 test or vaccination certificate when traveling in the U.S.
The CDC cited the latest research on the role of vaccines in the real world as its latest guidance. Last month, the agency stated that fully vaccinated people can visit each other indoors without wearing masks or maintaining social distancing. It also said that as long as the unvaccinated person is at a low risk of being infected with a serious disease, the vaccinated person can visit under similar conditions with unvaccinated people from the same family.
The United States began rolling out vaccines in mid-December. The vaccines of Pfizer and Moderna need to be divided into two injections several weeks apart. At the end of February, regulators approved Johnson & Johnson’s one-time injection vaccine.
