Friday, April 2, 2021- the CDC updated its travel guidance for fully vaccinated people. Many business owners have been awaiting guidance as their employees are beginning to return to work and for many that includes travel. CDC recommendations include fully vaccinated people can travel at low risk to themselves. A person is considered to be fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of the vaccine.
The press release includes these highlights:
- Fully vaccinated people can travel internationally without getting a COVID-19 test before travel unless it is required by the international destination.
- Fully vaccinated people do not need to self-quarantine after returning to the United States, unless required by a state or local jurisdiction.
- Fully vaccinated people must still have a negative COVID-9 test result before they board a flight to the United States and get a COVID-19 test 3 to 5 dats after returning from international travel.
- Fully vaccinated people should continue to take COVID-19 precautions while traveling internationally.
These latest updates will need consideration in your operations as employees not only begin to travel for work, but as more people are venturing out with summer travel and vacations upon us.
