The U.S. Travel Association said the new travel guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is “a major step in the right direction.” The CDC now says that fully vaccinated travelers — those who have had a full series of an approved vaccine at least two weeks prior — “can travel safely within the United States” and have no need to self-quarantine or test for COVID-19 either before or after travel unless their destination requires it.  Roger Dow, CEO of U.S. Travel, said the CDC’s data suggests that vaccinated individuals don’t transmit the coronavirus, which, he said, “opens the door much wider for resuming travel, albeit while continuing to carefully follow other health best practices.” Acknowledging that vaccinations eliminate the need for testing and quarantines, said Dow, removes a key barrier to domestic travel. Rescinding the recommendation that international visitors must quarantine, he said, is also an important incremental step.
