- The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can travel freely in the US without tests or quarantines
- The new guidance means that "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," CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Friday during a news briefing
- However, people continue to travel even without receiving the vaccine shots. American Airlines reported Monday that the company's bookings jumped to 90 percent of pre-pandemic levels
- Despite the vaccine rollouts, the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise. The current seven-day average of new cases is about 62,000 per day
- More than 56 million Americans are now fully vaccinated, according to the CDC, with at least 100 million people who have received at least one dose of the vaccine
