Updated C.D.C. guidelines indicate that vaccinated people are free to travel with precautions

New guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today indicate that vaccinated Americans can travel both domestically and internationally "at low risk to themselves."

For international travel, vaccinated Americans do not need to have a COVID-19 test before arriving overseas unless that country mandates a test. A negative test should be obtained before returning to the U.S.A however. Travelers do not need to quarantine after returning to the U.S.A. unless local rules require it.

Guidelines for those who are vaccinated continue to recommend that the usual precautions should continue to be enforced, including hand-washing, masks, and social distancing.

For those who are not vaccinated, the recommendation to avoid any non-essential domestic and international travel remains.

This is a significant development for Walt Disney World, with prior travel restrictions a significant barrier to guests being able to visit.

WDW made an announcement about lifting all Covid restrictions, etc so if they reinstate them another thread will be created to enable discussion.

You ever go to Epcot? WS stores are not all open. Not even close. Lots of dining missing. Tons of shows missing No trams at Epcot or DHS. We had a lovely time but the missing and restrictions stand out. Pretending something is back to normal isn't the same as it actually being back to normal.

I thought I contributed greatly to the downfall of the thread. Giving myself to much credit i guess.😎

All closed? I saw just about all dining open. There are shows. And cultural reps are there. There is a thread in here about it. Not sure about the trams. I knew they are running MK. And Epcot I think. I didn’t see any store closed. And as for all shows. Yes some are not on. But many are. Either way. It was a great time. Genie plus works great. Loved the whole visit.

As for the hand sanitizers being removed , IMO its a bad idea but maybe im just speaking for myself. Im a clean nut. I do taje sanitizer with me and use it acter everything. Ive been sick almost every time i return home from a trip and since ive been taken my own, i think one time I didn’t feel good out of the last 10-12 trips. Sure there are a lot of bathrooms and wasking is much better but for me that needs to clean after i leave a store, attraction, monorail,bus,skyliner,etc it comes in handy. Not taking it out of my backpack after doing any of those things and getting some was convenient. But thats me. Oh and welcome back everyone..even you #hopemax. 😂

I’ll be shocked if those ever go away.

I won't be ready to declare the "end of pandemic restrictions" until they remove park reservations. I mean, that's why they are there, right? It wasn't just an opportunistic way to further lock down people into ridiculous levels of vacation planning. Amirite?

correcaminosAug 02, 2022

For some that's not an easy option.

correcaminosAug 02, 2022

It's why we won't return to AKL anytime soon. As AP and DVC I'm more patient on the rest. Oh and those darn patk reservations and hopping at 2pm. Still annoyed with that. Disney is getting there but missing lots still.

Even when trams were running I followed the crowd to walk to our cars instead of waiting for the tram.

All of this is why my Disney focus is currently with DCL.

correcaminosAug 02, 2022

Dining, stores, shows etc all closed. Lack of cultural reps. Lots missing we enjoy. Plus no trams in two parks and some transportation missing.

DCBakerAug 02, 2022

Trams have not returned to EPCOT or Hollywood Studios.
