Vaccinated people can travel but with precautions — US health authorities

Fully vaccinated people can start traveling again if they take precautions such as wearing a mask and observing social distancing, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Travel is picking up again in the U.S. Within the country, vaccinated people will not have to self-quarantine or take a COVID-19 test after traveling.

But international travelers headed to the U.S. should have a negative COVID-19 test before they get on the plane, be tested after arrival, and must quarantine if local authorities in the U.S. require it.

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

A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of vaccine, the CDC said. That means the second shot for vaccines that require two jabs.

More than one in five adults in America is now fully vaccinated.
