The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an update regarding domestic traveland eased restrictions for travelers who are fully vaccinated.
The CDC website stated, as of April 3:
People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine do not need to get tested before or after travel unless their destination requires it, and do not need to self-quarantine.
However, those travelers should still follow the CDC's recommendations for traveling safely, including wearing masks over their noses and mouths; staying six feet from others and avoiding crowds; and washing hands often and/or using hand sanitizer.
The CDC recommends that people delay travel until they are fully vaccinated, because travel increases the chances of getting and spreading COVID-19. Those who are not fully vaccinated and must travel should follow the CDC's recommendations for unvaccinated people.
The CDC will update these recommendations as more people are vaccinated, as rates of COVID-19 change and as additional scientific evidence becomes available.
People are designated to be "fully vaccinated" two weeks after their second doses in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines; or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine.
This guidance applies to travel within the United States and U.S. territories.
