On Friday, Authorities announced that fully vaccinated people can start traveling again if they take precautions such as wearing a mask and observing social distancing.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky said Friday the new guidance is based on studies showing the "real-world" effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines on transmission.

As of Thursday, 99.6 million US residents have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and more than 56 million people have been fully vaccinated.

So at the end of the day, it's your decision if you expose yourself to traveling.

The United States continues to make progress in Covid-19 vaccinations, with 50 percent of Americans 65 and older fully vaccinated.

"Fully vaccinated" is two weeks after receiving the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, or two weeks after receiving the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

- Fully vaccinated people do not need to self-quarantine after returning to the United States, unless required by a state or local jurisdiction.

According to the state's travel advisory, all travelers should get tested one to three days before starting their journeys, and nonessential travelers should get tested three to five days upon arrival into California and self-quarantine for a full seven days after travel, even if their test is negative.

It looks like the COVID-19 guidelines are slowly being lifted.

- Fully vaccinated people should continue to take COVID-19 precautions while traveling internationally. They should stay home and self-quarantine for 7 days after travel or 10 days if they don't get tested at the conclusion of travel.
