CDC Announces People Fully Vaccinated against COVID-19 Can Travel without Tests or Quarantine

Travel within the United States of America is completely open to those who have been vaccinated. However, they still have to follow recommendations such as wearing a mask and social distancing.


COVID-19 testing and quarantining when traveling is a thing of the past for those who have been fully vaccinated against the virus. Masks, sanitizing hands, and social distancing are still required by those who have received the vaccine.

The CDC has announced that the lowered risk of contracting and spreading the virus that comes with the vaccine allows traveling with more ease and less restriction and protocols.

The CDC paired its most recent release of regulations with the recommendation that people wait until they have received an FDA-authorized vaccine before booking their tickets to travel locally.


The guidelines surrounding those who have been vaccinated are only eligible for those traveling within the USA. Everyone is still required to follow the regulations of the destinations to which they are going. The release reads:

"CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated, because travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19."



Today reported that the impact of these new regulations might have little to no impact on traveling as many people have already been moving across the country before distributing the vaccines.

Experts from various universities are interested in the evidence that the CDC has to back its newly updated guidelines.

American Airlines have seen a 90% increase in bookings since the pandemic kicked off. The relaxing of regulations for those who are fully vaccinated is not likely to affect those numbers too drastically.



The result of the new regulations has a greater effect on family members and friends who will now be able to gather indoors close to one another without wearing masks or maintaining a six-foot distance.

All parties involved in such gatherings need to be fully vaccinated. An individual is fully vaccinated two weeks after their second shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or a single dose of Johnson & Johnson. The CDC director shared:

"If you and a friend or you and a family member are both vaccinated, you can have dinner together."



CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky shared that she knows that the people who have received the vaccine are itching to get back to the activities that resemble a more normal life.

The director reiterated that the new regulations are a step in the right direction in reverting to a better sense of normality. As more information and data emerge, the regulations will be updated.


Experts from various universities are interested in the evidence that the CDC has to back its newly updated guidelines, especially because of the regulations concerning the 90 days of quarantining after exposure to the virus.

Still, the academics and researchers are confident that the vaccine will do its job in securing that the world's population will be able to return to a version of life closer to what we had pre-pandemic.
