Has the pandemic crippled all your travel plans? Well, if it is of any help it was not just you but all many other people who were travel enthusiasts but couldn’t even step out of their houses due to the coronavirus pandemic. Strict travel restrictions are in place in many countries including the United States of America. These are not new restrictions as they had been imposed from the beginning of the pandemic. Ban on International flights or flights coming from a particular region had been imposed.
Travel Restrictions Eased For Fully Vaccinated People
The Air Traffic for the year 2020 was significantly low because nobody was traveling much except for the cargo flights. Even the busiest airports were empty and no passengers were to be seen, all because of a virus that is not visible to the naked eye. All these things had never occurred before and it felt like the world had stopped for a moment. But in recent developments, decisions were made over travel restrictions.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that people who have taken both the shots of the vaccine and are completely vaccinated can resume travel. This news is very much relieving because finally, a ray of hope is visible. People who are tired of staying at home can get vaccinated and resume some adventures of course by taking all the necessary precautions. The necessary precautions include wearing a face mask properly and maintaining a healthy distance from the other individual.
Many people have welcomed this decision of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The vaccinations were brought into action to bring the world back to normal, being able to travel without any such restrictions is one of those things.
The Americans who have got themselves completely vaccinated by taking the two prescribed shots of the vaccine within the time frame of 28 to 30 days can travel without restrictions. These people will now not have to abide by the 14-day mandatory quarantine rule. Earlier the rules included mandatory 14-day isolation when the person was traveling from one place to another. Recently, the fears had risen that there are new variants of the virus and the effectiveness of the vaccine would not be the same on the variants. The CDC has ensured that the vaccinations are still potent and will help gain significant protection against the variants of the coronavirus as well.
These ease in restrictions have been given because the vaccinations put you at a lower risk for the transmission of the virus. People who have completed the vaccination process are less prone to be affected by the virus. Now the crucial part comes that a proper record needs to be maintained on who is vaccinated or not. There needs to be some sort of proof available with the person who has been administered the complete dosage of the vaccine. Recently, there were also concerns about the shortage of vaccination shots in the United States of America but all these reports were quashed by the President of the United States himself.
President Biden also assured that the entire American Population would be vaccinated by the end of September.
For all those who have not got themselves vaccinated, what are you waiting for? This can emerge as an opportunity for you to get vaccinated completely and then enjoy a little vacay. The new guidelines also suggest that the Airlines will have to take extra care and keep a detailed list of the passengers that have traveled with them.
The Covid-19 tests are not mandatory for individuals who are fully vaccinated on the Airports. We just hope that the travelers do not forget that the pandemic is still on and take due care as per need.
