CDC : "Unvaccinated Young Foreign Travelers do Not Need to Quarantine"
The Index Today
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in U.S. said on Saturday that if the unvaccinated foreign nationals are under the age of 18 traveling to the United States by air do not have to be in self-quarantine upon arrival.
On Saturday, the CDC Director Rochelle Walensky already signed a revised order clarifying that foreign national children who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to isolate for seven days upon arrival in the United States.
The CDC mentioned earlier this week that the non-tourist travelers from almost 50 countries with the nationwide vaccination rates of less than 10% will also be eligible for exemption from the vaccine requirement but will need to self-quarantine for seven days upon arrival. According to the Reuters report, those receiving an exemption will generally need to be vaccinated within 60 days after arriving in the United States.
The CDC mentioned that it will accept any vaccine authorized for use by U.S. regulators or the World Health Organization and will accept mixed-dose coronavirus vaccines.
