Americans who are fully vaccinated will not be required to submit a PCR test or quarantine if they travel within the United States. This was reported on its official website by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

However, the centers indicate that it may be necessary to present the negative PCR test, in case local authorities require it. They also recommend the continued use of COVID-19 prevention measures: facemask use, hand washing, and social distancing. But, in addition, they indicate that if there is a group of people who are fully vaccinated, people can gather without using the mask.

“Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to have a SARS-CoV-2 viral test before or after domestic travel, unless local, state, or territorial health authorities require testing,” the report says.

Will international travelers need to present a negative PCR test?

The document, which is published in the midst of travel for the long weekend due to Easter, details that it would be safe to travel for people who have already received the Pzifer and Moderna vaccines, or the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson, which are the three that are administered in the United States.

Despite the measure, international travelers arriving on U.S. soil will be required to present a negative PCR test. “For fully vaccinated air travelers coming to the United States from abroad, including U.S. citizens, a negative viral test result is still mandatory.”
