New York (AP)- According to the new US guidelines released on Friday, trips to activities that vaccinated Americans can 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 coronavirus testing or subsequent isolation.
The agency has previously warned that even vaccinated people should not travel unnecessarily, but pointed out that as more people get vaccinated and collect evidence about the protection provided by vaccination, the agency 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 change the guidance based on the existing data.”
Khan said that this update has strengthened the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine and is also another incentive for people to get vaccinated.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 1
People who have not been vaccinated are still advised to avoid unnecessary travel.
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 said, although some destinations may require that people receiving vaccinations do not need to be tested for COVID-19 before leaving.
-The vaccinated person should still get a negative COVID-19 test before boarding a flight to the United States, and be tested 3 to 5 days after returning home. 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.
The CDC cited the latest research on the role of vaccines in the real world as its latest guidance. The agency has stated that people who are fully vaccinated can visit each other indoors without having to wear masks or maintain social distancing. It also stated that as long as the unvaccinated people have a low serious risk of contracting the disease, they can visit unvaccinated people from the same family under similar conditions.
The United States began to introduce vaccines in mid-December 2007. The first batch of vaccines (from Pfizer and Moderna) needed several weeks to divide into two injections. At the end of February, regulators approved Johnson & Johnson’s one-time injection vaccine.
