TSA screens record amount of travelers since start of pandemic

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Officers with the Transportation Security Administration screened a pandemic-era record amount of people on Sunday, a spokesperson said.

A TSA spokesperson said that 1,850,531 travelers passed through airport checkpoints, the most since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Although the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has relaxed their mask guidance, masks are still required to be worn at airport security checkpoints and throughout the transportation network.

The CDC has released guidance that is urging people to delay traveling until they are fully vaccinated.

People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson.

If you are fully vaccinated and travel in the US, you do not need to get tested before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel, according to the CDC.

For international travel, the CDC recommends that vaccinated travelers pay attention to requirements at the international destination. People should still get tested 3-5 days after international travel, but don’t need to self-quarantine, according to the latest CDC guidance.

CDC officials are urging people to take all precautions until reaching full vaccination status.
