The CDC Says Vaccinated People Can Safely Travel, But Please Don’t
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced that vaccinated people are extremely unlikely to spread COVID-19 to others, and thus can safely travel with minimal risk.
But also, it’s theoretically possible for the vaccinated to infect others, and people still shouldn’t travel, according to…the CDC.
Confused? Blame CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, who constantly delivers good news about the amazing efficacy of the vaccines and then undercuts this seconds later by asserting that the fully vaccinated should continue to wear masks, socially distance, and avoid travel if they can.
At a public briefing on Friday, Walensky said that vaccinated people “can resume travel at low risk to themselves.” She even conceded that the vaccinated do not need to take COVID-19 tests or quarantine after travel.
“Fully vaccinated grandparents can fly to visit their healthy grandkids without getting a COVID-19 test or self-quarantining, provided they follow the other recommended prevention measures while traveling,” she said.
But just because vaccinated folks can travel doesn’t mean they should travel.
“While we believe that fully vaccinated people can travel at low risk to themselves, CDC is not recommending travel at this time due to the rising number of cases,” said Walensky.
This may sound contradictory, but it’s standard fare for the CDC
