However, while fully vaccinated people who travel are at low risk, the number of COVID-19 cases does continue to rise. Fully vaccinated people should still maintain social distancing and avoid crowds.

For those who are not considered fully-vaccinated, the CDC's guidance remains to limit travel to necessary trips only, get tested one to three days before a trip and three to five days after a trip, and quarantining before and after the trip. However, she also said that with the rising number of COVID cases, the CDC is not recommending nonessential travel at this time.

The CDC has updated their guidance for fully vaccinated Americans and now says they can now resume travel with low risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. The US started vaccine roll out in mid-December.

As vaccinations continue across Kentucky, there is hope of a return to normal life, Saborit said, but it will be a slow process.

Video posted online showed a dark-coloured sedan crashed against a vehicle barrier and a police K9 inspecting the vehicle. US Capitol Police said that one of the police officers had also died, while the other two officers are hospitalised.

More than 56 million Americans are fully vaccinated already, according to the latest figures from the CDC.

Air travel still remains down 43 per cet from pre-COVID levels and business and global travel remain even harder hit.

Fully vaccinated people are also allowed to meet indoors without masks. https://twitter.com/CDCgov/status/1377312255088472064The statement also means that those who have been fully-vaccinated do not need to get tested before leaving the United States of America; they also do not need to quarantine on their arrival back in the country. CDC discourages non-essential domestic travel by those who are not fully vaccinated.

For worldwide travel, passengers should still have a negative test before boarding a flight to the United States and a follow-up test three to five days after their return, the CDC says.
