The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday that fully-vaccinated people could safely travel again.
The message comes after days of mixed messaging about what could- or could not be done safely, as well as ongoing reports of increased COVID-19 infection across the U.S.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky urged caution heading into the holiday weekend. During her remarks, she noted that while the policy was changing- her own advocacy would be against traveling.
At this point, more than 100 million people have received a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. That’s approximately 30% of the population.
People are considered fully-vaccinated two weeks after their second dose.
