CDC coronavirus guidelines for those who traveled for holidays

The Transportation Security Administration reports 1,284,599 people were screened at airport checkpoints nationwide on Dec. 27. That is the highest number of passengers screened since mid-March.

For five consecutive days after Christmas, the 26th through the 30th, TSA reported more than one million passengers were screened each day.

The CDC has several recommendations for those who traveled over the holidays:

  • It recommends getting tested three to five days after returning home
  • Limit non-essential activities for 7 days
  • If you don’t get tested, they recommend isolating for 10 days.

If you return home to someone who did not travel with you, the CDC recommends:

  • Social distancing
  • Wearing a mask
  • Washing your hands frequently
  • Avoiding being around those who are high-risk
