Travel Technology Association Statement on New CDC Travel Guidelines for Fully Vaccinated Americans

“As one of the largest industries in the nation – supporting 1 in 10 jobs in 2019 – the travel and tourism industry has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout this difficult time, Travel Technology Association members have been working hard to meet the challenges of the pandemic by innovating and working to implement comprehensive safety measures to protect the traveling public and workforce.

“We welcome the news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announcing that fully vaccinated Americans can safely travel domestically and internationally without testing or quarantine requirements, unless their destination requires it.

“Americans are eager to begin traveling again, and this new guidance is an important step towards the recovery of the travel and tourism industry and the broader U.S. economy.”

— Steve Shur, President, Travel Technology Association
