CDC Now Recommending All US Domestic Travelers Get Tested for Covid Before Travel

CDC Now Recommending All US Domestic Travelers Get Tested for Covid Before Travel

As Blue Cities eye reinstating mask mandates, unhappy citizens share skepticism about success of previous covid policies.

Sadly, Biden’s bureaucrats are bitterly clinging to authority and power.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wants all of the nation’s domestic travelers to “consider getting tested” for covid, regardless of vaccination status.

The agency now urges all domestic travelers to “consider getting tested as close to the time of departure as possible (no more than three days) before your trip,” according to its Covid-19 website updates this month.

This advice notably includes travelers who are current with their vaccines and boosters.

Previously, the recommendation to test before domestic travel applied to those who weren’t up-to-date with their Covid-19 vaccines.

There’s also testing guidance for after your trip is over, especially if you’ve been spending time in areas crowded with people.

The CDC recommends taking a Covid-19 test after domestic travel “if your trip involved situations with greater risk of exposure such as being in crowded places while not wearing a well-fitting mask or respirator.”

The recommendation is being received with a great deal of skepticism by a pandemic-weary public.

Meanwhile, the surge in mild omicron cases is leading some localities to bring back unpopular restrictions. For example, Philadelphia is resuming the implementation of a school mask mandate.

The School District of Philadelphia announced it is returning to a mask mandate for all students and staff within the district, citing an increase in COVID-19 cases throughout the city.

Students and staff will now be required to follow the district’s mask policy, which began on Monday, according to a district-wide announcement.

The announcement states that students and staff are required to wear a mask during the school and workday, and while on school buses and vans.

Officials at the New York City Health Department are pushing for voluntary mask wearing:

The City’s Department of Health announced the move Tuesday morning, with Health Commissioner Dr Ashwin Vasan announcing that it is the time to ‘double down’ on Covid prevention measures.

The change comes a day after city officials released a notice recommending all New Yorkers over the age of two mask in in-door public places – though they did not announce it would be mandated.

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is poised to pull the trigger on another universal mask order in indoor public settings and urging people to wear professional-grade respiratory protection in indoor environments.

L.A. County remains far from meeting its own metrics for reissuing a mask order, but a moderate increase in coronavirus case rates has officials concerned. L.A. County has continued to strongly recommend all residents age 2 and over wear masks in indoor public settings — especially higher-quality respirators like KF94, KN95 and N95 masks — ever since it lifted its 7½-month-old universal mask order on March 4.

..At its current pace, L.A. County is expected to move as early as this week from a low COVID-19 community level, as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and colored green in the agency’s maps, to a medium COVID-19 community level, shaded in yellow. L.A. County will move into the medium COVID-19 community level category once it begins reporting 200 coronavirus cases a week for every 100,000 residents.

A universal mask mandate would return if L.A. County reaches a high COVID-19 community level, colored in orange on the CDC’s maps, health officials have said

The evidence suggests that the reinstated mask mandates will be as popular as the CDC’s testing recommendations.

We have been testing everyone in the country with every kind of test imaginable with one huge exception: no one has tested Biden to see if he is mentally competent to be president.

    Some jurisdictions will no doubt seek to use a late summer/fall ‘surge’ in case counts as a pretext to reinstate the lax ballot and election security conditions. IMO, this is the last gasp of the bureaucracy and some weak minded people who simply don’t want to let Covid mania end. This effort will ultimately be very counter productive to their aims; the vast majority are done with Covid Mania, having played nicely and gone along with it to get to the promised promised end they will not willingly subject themselves to another round of lockdown, mask wearing rituals and one sided hectoring from the Covid Karens.

My middle fingers have never gotten so much exercise as the last couple years.

I might think of listening to the CDC if they appologized for past politically-motivated advice with mass seppuku.

As this is unlikely to happen, I’ll settle for complete defunding and 100% RIF.

Hard pass, CDC. Hard. Pass.

No. F*ck no. And if anybody “requires” it, then I just don’t need to go.

We stand firm at, ‘No, and go fuck yourselves’.

The CDC can KMA and GFY.

Why, it’s almost as if our COVID vaccines are less effective than four ounces of warm piss in a Dixie Cup.

    Yeah, but only if it’s warm.

    The experimental treatments were suitable for delivery to high-risk cohorts, but there is no scientific basis for the Mengele mandates. The “vaccines” have demonstrated a a significant (i.e. large minority) lack of durable and robust effect, with adverse events in the short and long-term, and likely sources of progressive forward-looking conditions (e.g. immunity impairment, reproductive dysfunction).

Adjusting for excess deaths from planned parent/hood, denial of safe and effective drugs, social contagion-induced collateral damage, and short-term and long-term Covax-21 and 22 in the general population, Covid-19, 20, 21, and 22 do not pose a greater risk to even the most at-risk cohorts than perennial diseases and lifestyle choices.

My husband & I have traveled extensively in the past two years….it will be a cold day in hell before we start taking covid tests before and after domestic travel. We are miffed that we have to test to return to the US. I guess the letter that the airlines wrote recently requesting this be appealed will be ignored by the CDC.

    You don’t need to test to return to the U.S. Just fly to Mexico City and come across the border. Request asylum and you’ll get a free plane ticket for the rest of your return journey.

    Hey, stay a couple of days in Mexico City and see the sights.

Are any airlines or airports implementing this “recommendation”? All too often its recommendations are treated as orders.

But walkers, drivers, boaters and illegal aliens need not? I suspect there is another game afoot here…an attempt to destroy air travel for their global warming hoax.

They are desperately trying to bat the Covid ball back up in the air as if it were volleyball.

My roommate and I returned on Tuesday from a 4-day west coast conference. We live on the east coast. We are both vaxxed, and she is boosted. I am not. We left home feeling great. After we returned home, we were notified that another attendee had been exposed to COVID. So, we tested. My vaxxed and boosted roommate tested positive. I did not.

My point is this: We spent 4 days in meeting rooms and lunch rooms, and significant time in 3 crowded airports. Not sure what we could have done that would have made any difference – except stay home, I guess.

I can’t believe that anyone who subscribes to this blog would have submitted to the vx. Everything about it is so obviously fake.

    I subscribe to this blog, and I received it. Why? I was working as a hospital chaplain, and it was required. Also, I wasn’t sure in Jan 2021 if getting the Vax would protect the sick people I was visiting with throughout my day, so I decided I should receive the Vax out of an abundance of caution.

I’m completely up to date with my vaccines. AS for the shots that don’t work against the dreaded covid, haven’t had any, aren’t going to get any.

The failure rate for any kind of vaccine against any coronavirus, animal or human, is still 100%.
