Vaccinated Travelers Can Visit The U.S.

The U.S. government has announced that vaccinated travelers from a number of countries will now be allowed to visit the U.S., ending a ban on most non-citizens due to the pandemic.

Foreign visitors will need to show proof of vaccination before boarding their U.S.-bound flights, and will also need to provide proof of a negative COVID test taken within three days before arriving.

Accepted vaccines will be determined by the CDC.

The ease of restrictions will apply only to those arriving via airplane, as U.S. land border policies will remain the same for now.

Crystal River Cruises Extends Vaccine Requirement

Crystal River Cruises has announced that it has extended its vaccination requirement for guests and crew through December 2022.
