The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is struggling to give consistent and clear messaging on what vaccinated people should and should not do.
"We continue to encourage every American to get vaccinated as soon as it's their turn, so we can begin to safely take steps back to our everyday lives", CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said. However, the CDC had not made any move to review its guidance that discouraged all non-essential trips.More news: Myanmar death toll mounts amid protests, military crackdown
As for worldwide travel, the CDC says fully vaccinated people don't need a COVID-19 test prior to travel unless it is required by the destination. However, all air passengers coming into the US must have a negative coronavirus test result from no more than three days before their travel date. Transportation Safety Administration's numbers show more than 1 million passengers have passed through airport security almost every day in March.
