Flight attendants share what to know about flying this year

Who Should Travel?

It comes down to your vaccination status. The CDC strongly urges unvaccinated people to delay travel until they are fully vaccinated (two weeks after receiving their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine). Guidelines ease up for people who are fully vaccinated, but there are still some requirements.

  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when traveling. It’s required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation and in transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
  • Follow all state and local requirements for the destination you’re traveling to, including mask wearing and social distancing. Respect the rules of the room.
  • After travel, self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
  • Get tested with a viral test 1–3 days before your trip.
  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth. It’s required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation and in transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
  • Follow all state and local requirements, including mask wearing and social distancing, for the destination you’re traveling to.
  • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who is not traveling with you.
  • Get tested with a viral test 3–5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel; if you don’t get tested, quarantine for at least 10 days after travel.
