The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have revised their guidelines, allowing fully vaccinated Americans to travel freely domestically without having to quarantine or get tested.
Travelers are still advised to adhere to safety guidelines even if they are vaccinated including wearing masks, social distancing and washing their hands frequently.
The CDC says they are still not advising leisure travel. They say the updated guidelines are more geared toward people visiting family.
Dr. Hugh Cassiere, with Northwell Health, says this might not be the right time for travel restrictions to be lifted because COVID-19 numbers are ticking up across the country.
The CDC says unvaccinated people should still get tested before and after their trip. They say they also need to quarantine after returning.
Earlier this week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo ended the mandatory quarantine for domestic travelers entering New York though it's still recommended.
