Good news from the CDC if you want to travel within the United States! I love good news as it illustrates that perhaps we are getting closer to a more realistic, new normal. As far as I can tell it is the best travel advice to help guide you through the process. Covid-19 Travel can be complicated but we are starting to clear the air. So, as of April 2, 2020 here is what the CDC is saying..
Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread COVID-19. People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine can travel safely within the United States. Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to get tested before or after travel unless their destination requires it. Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to self-quarantineFully vaccinated means waiting at least two weeks to travel after your final vaccine dose.
But remember, being fully vaccinated is one step closer to getting through this mess. In the meantime, please be responsible and:
Don’t forget, if you are planning on traveling outside of the country, get the input from a qualified travel advisor who can guide you through health requirements of the country you are visiting and remember, as of now, even if you are fully vaccinated, you do still need a negative Covid-19 test no more than three days prior to your arrival back into the United States.
Here is a link to the CDC information.
And on a related note, the CDC is still recommending avoiding non-essential travel. My advice, travel responsibly when its right for you and/or your family.
Happy and safe travels!
I am on a mission to get you traveling more often. As the host of the Emmy award- winning, nationally syndicated television television for PBS and the Create channel, "Beyond Your Backyard," I travel (on average) 25 weeks per year. I am very grateful for the opportunity to meet cool people, experience new places, eat delicious food and work with the best production crew in the world. Hopefully, through this blog, you will join me on my travels and be reminded just how exciting it is to be alive!
