(CNN) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will not be issuing updated travel guidance just yet.
The agency says that will come once more people have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
At this point, only 10% of Americans have gotten a vaccine.
CDC recommends you do not #travel at this time. If you have to travel, plan ahead! Before you go, check your airline & destination requirements. If you don’t follow your destination’s requirements, you may be denied entry & required to return to the US. https://t.co/8tSBonrv4J pic.twitter.com/k4dsvnDCd7

The CDC recommends that people avoid air travel if they can.
The industry group “Airlines for America” insists that flying on a plane is low risk because of heavily filtered air and federally mandated mask wearing.
