US issues travel advice for vaccinated holidaymakers

The United States have updated advice for vaccinated travellers.

Those who have received two doses of their vaccination are able to travel internationally without the need to quarantine, in new guidance set out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

New advice says that those with two doses of the vaccine can travel across the United States domestically without needing to quarantine before or after or get a test for coronavirus.

They are also able to travel internationally without the need to get a COVID-19 test - unless their destination asks for one, and they also do not need to self-quarantine when they come back to the US.

However, advice released on Friday (02.04.21) insists that people should still have a negative test before flying into the United States and then a test a few days after they return.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a press briefing: "We haven't changed our guidance for nonessential travel at all. We are not recommending travel at this time, especially for unvaccinated people. I still continue to worry that with 80% of the population unvaccinated that we still have a lot of work to do to control this pandemic."

Travellers are still being asked to wear masks and practice social distancing.
