CDC Notices

Updated Travel Guidance:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its travel guidance for fully vaccinated people to reflect the latest evidence and science. Given recent studies evaluating the real-world effects of vaccination, CDC recommends that fully vaccinated people can travel at low risk to themselves. A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of vaccine.

Flights to the United States:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires pre-departure testing of all passengers on flights to the United States. In accordance with the CDC Order, airlines must verify that each passenger over the age of 2 provides a negative COVID-19 test result, conducted within 3 calendar days prior to departure, and an attestation that they received a negative test result or have recovered from COVID-19.

*It is important to remember that there are no nonstop international commercial flights arriving or departing through CAK.
