On Friday, April 2, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated guidance for fully vaccinated individuals to indicate they can travel “at low risk to themselves.” Here are the updated guidelines:
- A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of vaccine.
- For domestic travel within the US, fully vaccinated people:
- Can travel within the United States and do not need COVID-19 testing or post-travel self-quarantine as long as they continue to take COVID-19 precautions while traveling – wearing a mask, avoiding crowds, socially distancing, and washing hands frequently.
- For international travel, fully vaccinated people:
- Can travel internationally without getting a COVID-19 test before travel unless it is required by the international destination.
- Do not need to self-quarantine after returning to the United States, unless required by a state or local jurisdiction.
- Must still have a negative COVID-19 test result before they board a flight to the United States and get a COVID-19 test 3 to 5 days after returning from international travel.
- Should continue to take COVID-19 precautions while traveling internationally.
IMA will continue to monitor regulator guidance and offer meaningful, practical, timely information.
