(Washington) Those vaccinated against COVID-19 can resume travel when taking precautionary measures, i.e. wearing a mask and respecting physical distance, U.S. health officials said Friday.
Traveling in the United States does not require isolation or testing for COVID-19 from them after the trip.
On the other hand, international passengers who have been vaccinated will always be asked for a negative test before boarding a flight back to the United States, and are recommended to be tested again three to five days after their return.
They must adhere to an isolation in the United States after their trip only if requested by local authorities.
Immunized travelers traveling abroad must have a negative test before leaving the United States if requested by the authorities of the country in which they travel.
These new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have come as travel in the United States has taken a strong turn, especially thanks to the spring break.
A person is considered to be vaccinated two weeks after vaccination (second dose for those given two injections).
“More than one in five adults is now vaccinated in the United States,” CDC director Rochelle Valensky told a news conference.
