What did the State Department say about travel restrictions?
The state department has not given a timeline of when the restrictions will be lifted.
In early April, the CDC said that vaccinated US citizens can travel at “low-risk” within the country.
However, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky advised against any kind of travel despite vaccination to avoid a surge.
Walensky told Reuters: “We know that right now we have a surging number of cases. I would advocate against general travel overall.
“We are not recommending travel at this time, especially for unvaccinated individuals.”
