CDC Announces New Travel Guidelines

Just recently, the CDC says travelers who are fully vaccinated can travel without having to worry about testing or quarantine recommendations.

As the country continues getting vaccinated and restrictions continue to ease up, most Americans want to go on vacation, or finally reunite with friends and family.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people who are fully vaccinated are less likely to get or spread COVID-19.

Just recently, the CDC says travelers who are fully vaccinated can travel without having to worry about testing or quarantine recommendations.

Previously, all travelers were encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 1-3 days before traveling and 3-5 days afterwards. They were also asked to self-isolate for at least 7 days after returning  from their trip; even with a negative test.

Now, fully vaccinated travelers who are traveling domestically or internationally can do so without getting a COVID-19 test unless their destination requires it.

However, the CDC still recommends masks, social distancing, and good hand hygiene for all travelers.

The CDC says recommendations will continue to be updated as more people get vaccinated, as rates of COVID-19 change, and as scientific evidence becomes available.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
