America had a relatively good month in February, with progressively better Covid-19 statistics week-on-week and three vaccines are now in play–Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna. A review of the state-by-state travel restrictions across the U. S. shows the progress being made–there are far fewer regions listed as high risk for many states, proving that travel is becoming a little easier. As a result, many states are relaxing travel restrictions–in Alaska and Pennsylvania it is no longer necessary at the beginning of March to have a negative Covid-19 test result before arrival nor enter a mandatory quarantine. What’s more, three states no longer have state-wide mask mandates in place–Alabama’s expires 5 March and Mississippi and Texas are removing the requirement. But there is need for caution, as reported by Axios. The statistics might look better, but they have plateaued and the current weeks’ figures of “65,000 daily cases is the same caseload the U. S. was seeing last July, at the height of the summer surge”. In Texas, where masks are no longer necessary, cases rose by 27% in the past week and in Mississippi, cases increased by 62%, the biggest weekly jump of any state. CDC director Rochelle Walensky urged caution in a press briefing at the White House on 1 March, saying “I am really worried about reports that more states are rolling back the exact public health measures we have recommended to protect people from Covid-19.” Walensky added, “I understand the temptation to do this—70,000 cases a day seems good compared to where we were just a few months ago—but we cannot be resigned to 70,000 cases a day, 2,000 daily deaths.”So whilst the vaccination effort is moving at “break neck speed” (President Biden said that there will be a vaccine available for every U. S. adult who wants one by May), the fear is that the variants of Covid-19 are moving too fast to control. It seems that March could be a decisive month for defining summer travel, in that ”if Americans let their guard down too soon, we could experience yet another surge–a fourth wave–before the vaccination campaign has had a chance to do its work.”The following states do not currently have any state-wide travel restrictions; Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Two states ended state-wide travel restrictions at the beginning of March 2021. As of 1 March, negative Covid-19 tests no longer a necessity before arrival in Pennsylvania nor is the 10-day quarantine. An announcement by Gov.
