    CDC issues guidelines for COVID-19 vaccinated population:

    "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Monday released highly anticipated guidance on practices considered safe for those who are fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, relating to gatherings, quarantine and testing. Of note, the federal health agency said that those who are fully vaccinated can spend time with unvaccinated people indoors, with no mask, so long as those who are unvaccinated are at low-risk for severe COVID-19.

    As vaccinations increase, this guidance represents a first step toward returning to everyday activities in our communities, and CDC will update these recommendations as more people are vaccinated, rates of COVID-19 in the community change, and as additional science and evidence become available," the CDC said in a press release regarding the guidance.

    Two weeks after the second dose, or the single-dose for those receiving a vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson, fully vaccinated persons can safely gather inside with other fully vaccinated people without wearing face masks or physical distancing, the CDC said, calling these indoor gatherings "likely low risk."

    According to data compiled by the CDC, 9.2% of the U.S. population is now fully vaccinated, and 17.7% have received at least one dose."

    Thus, 17.7% will have their 2nd dose by end of March, & be fully vaccinated by mid-April.

    So maybe Gov't officials & Travel industry will look into allowing fully vaccinated people to start travel freely soon...


    We'll both have our 2nd Pfizer shot next week & will be considered "fully vaccinated" by month's end. We have a trip booked to Desire Pearl Aug-Sept, but would like to book another earlier trip in May or June to either RM, Pearl, or Temptation as soon as they change the rules for showing vaccination card instead of Covid test, since along with our passport, it'll be guaranteed travel/flights to & from Cancun without worrying about the small possibility of the travel uncertainty of getting positive test for Covid while down there.


    We hope/predict they'll make this change by mid - end of April?

    Thoughts...?

    The current system will stay in place through the summer at least, and probably until 2022. Only thing that might change the process is if cases in destination counties bottom out, like to zero (and that isn't going to happen anytime soon)
    Negative test to get back to the states will be a norm for a while. If anything there will be more restrictions, including a proof of vaccination to travel out of the country (ie...validate your passport) followed by negative test to get back.

    Also, by the time the majority of persons (wanting to) get vaccinated the first individuals who received a vaccine may no longer be considered immune.

    TSA security or airline ticket agent....."May I see your passport and proof of vaccination or vaccine booster within 12 weeks of your return date?"

    "Flight 1230 from Houston to Cancun is now boarding. Please have your passport and proof of immunity ready for display to the gate agent".

    Would prefer to see proof of vaccination OR proof of negative test. Either, or.

    Got my first dose of Pfizer vaccine 2 weeks ago. 2nd one hopefully in around 10 weeks. Bring on summer and fingers crossed this whole situation is almost under control.

    All right.
    Agreed.
    For those traveling with fully vaccinated card, guaranteed travel. No neg covid test needed.
    For those traveling without vaccinated card, then they need to take covid test.
    We can live with that...

    Do you need a negative test result to travel to Mexico? For our canceled family Aruba trip in November, Aruba required proof of a negative PCR test 72hrs prior to arrival. Is that the case for entrance to Mexico? We will both be fully vaccinated before our trip to TTR end of May.
