11 guidelines for domestic and international travelers who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread COVID-19.
The agency says the COVID-19 situation, including the spread of new or concerning variants differs from country to country, and even fully vaccinated travelers need to pay close attention to the situation at their destination before traveling.
If you plan on traveling soon, these are the latest guidelines from the CDC:

Domestic travel

1. People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine can travel safely within the United States.
2. Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to get tested before or after travel unless their destination requires it.
3. Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to self-quarantine.
4. Fully vaccinated travelers should still follow CDC’s recommendations for traveling safely including, wearing a mask, staying six feet from others and avoiding crowds, and wash hands often or use hand sanitizer.
5. After traveling, self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms. Follow all state and local recommendations or requirements.
