The CDC is now demanding that unvaccinated Americans cease from any and all travel over the upcoming labor day holiday weekend.
As The Daily Mail reports:
The Center for Disease Control urged 80 million unvaccinated Americans to stay home for the Labor Day weekend as new COVID-19 cases reach about 160,000 per day.
‘First and foremost, if you are unvaccinated, we would recommend not traveling,’ CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said at a White House COVID-19 Response Team Briefing on Tuesday.
To date, 61.8 percent of eligible Americans received at least one dose of the vaccine and 52.4 percent are fully vaccinated, according to the CDC. Around 80 million eligible Americans, which does not include under 12s, have chosen not to get the shot.
‘Given where we are with disease transmission right now, we would say that people need to take their own these risks into their own consideration as they think about traveling,’ Walensky said.
The travel and hospitality industry has been hit especially hard by the continuous series of lockdowns and mask mandates issues by the CDC since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
