The CDC is not recommending travel for spring break, even as the number of people being vaccinated increases across the country.
According to the CDC, travel increases the chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. It recommends delaying travel and staying home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
A release from the U.S. Travel Association states that 12% of Americans plan to travel this spring break, which is down from 16% the week prior, when the question was first polled.
“The bottom line, people are still unsure how to travel, when to travel,” Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, said.
Dow said those who are planning to travel this spring break are preferring outdoor destinations, places that can be driven to, and places with fewer COVID-19 restrictions.
“Until we get consistency in the country between states and cities, it’s going to be tough bringing back travel,” he said.
