Congress is out of session until April 12, but we have important news regarding updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for those who want to travel.
Federal authorities have announced that fully vaccinated people can resume recreational travel in the U.S. at “low risk.”
They also signaled a relaxation of operational guidelines for cruise ships for those who are anxious to start cruising again. You can read more about those guidelines here: https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/s0402-conditional-sail-orders.html
Releasing its long-awaited travel guidance last Friday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said vaccinated individuals do not need a Covid test and do not need to quarantine when traveling domestically. They should still wear a mask, wash hands frequently, and avoid crowds.
However, the CDC still discourages “non-essential domestic travel” by those who are not fully vaccinated. Those people should get tested one to three days before travel, and again three to five days afterward. They should stay home and quarantine for seven days after traveling, or 10 days if they do not get a test, the CDC says.
