Weather Now in: Pietermaritzburg

No¬†travel¬†is¬†completely¬†safe,¬†and¬†how¬†safe¬†it¬†is¬†¬†depends¬†upon¬†¬†specific¬†¬†scenarios.¬†But¬†the¬†best¬†thing¬†to¬†do¬†if¬†you’re¬†¬†preparing¬†to¬†travel¬†is¬†to¬†make¬†sure¬†that¬†¬†everyone¬†in¬†your¬†travel¬†¬†celebration¬†who¬†is¬†eligible¬†is¬†fully¬†vaccinated,¬†¬†consisting¬†of¬†all¬†adults,¬†Lipps¬†says.¬†The¬†CDC¬†¬†suggests¬†that¬†you¬†¬†postpone¬†travel¬†¬†up¬†until¬†you¬†are¬†fully¬†¬†immunized.

As fall winds down, the  extremely transmissible delta  variation of SARS-CoV-2, which is now dominant in the U.S., is  triggering  concerns about everything from when it will be safe to return to work to how to keep  kids safe in schools.

For many people, fall travel  strategies are also in limbo.

On¬†Tuesday,¬†the¬†Centers¬†for¬†Disease¬†Control¬†and¬†Prevention¬†changed¬†its¬†¬†standards¬†for¬†fully¬†vaccinated¬†people,¬†¬†encouraging¬†that¬†they¬†¬†use¬†masks¬†¬†inside¬†in¬†¬†locations¬†where¬†there¬†are¬†¬†high¬†or¬†substantial¬†¬†rates¬†of¬†transmission.¬†The¬†counties¬†that¬†¬†fulfill¬†that¬†¬†requirements¬†make¬†up¬†about¬†two-thirds¬†of¬†the¬†U.S.¬†population,¬†according¬†to¬†a¬†CNBC¬†analysis¬†of¬†the¬†agency’s¬†¬†information.

”¬†We¬†are¬†¬†handling¬†a¬†different¬†virus¬†now,”¬†Dr.¬†Anthony¬†Fauci,¬†White¬†House¬†chief¬†medical¬†advisor,¬†said¬†about¬†the¬†delta¬†variant¬†in¬†an¬†interview¬†with¬†NPR¬†on¬†Tuesday.

 Is it even safe to travel?  The answer  totally  relies on your own individual circumstances, including your risk profile and tolerance, Dr. Ashley Lipps, assistant professor in the  department of infectious diseases at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, tells CNBC Make It.

Here are some  concerns you  may have approaching fall travel  strategies:

If¬†I’m¬†vaccinated,¬†is¬†it¬†OK¬†to¬†¬†take¬†a¬†trip?

Visiting Pietermaritzburg No travel is entirely safe, and how safe it  depends upon  specific  scenarios.

¬†The¬†best¬†thing¬†to¬†do¬†if¬†you’re¬†planning¬†to¬†¬†take¬†a¬†trip¬†is¬†to¬†make¬†sure¬†that¬†every¬†¬†individual¬†in¬†your¬†travel¬†¬†celebration¬†who¬†is¬†eligible¬†is¬†¬†totally¬†¬†immunized,¬†including¬†all¬†¬†grownups,¬†Lipps¬†says.¬†¬†The¬†CDC¬†recommends¬†that¬†you¬†¬†postpone¬†travel¬†until¬†you¬†are¬†¬†totally¬†¬†immunized.

Rules for unvaccinated people who  require to travel are stringent: The CDC  states unvaccinated people  must get  checked one to  3 days  prior to  taking a trip and again three to  5 days after returning, plus quarantine for  7 days upon returning home.

Both  immunized and unvaccinated people  need to wear masks on  airplanes, buses, trains, and other  kinds of public transportation,  in addition to inside  transport hubs such as  stations and airports .

 Everybody  must self-monitor for Covid symptoms.

Can I bring my young kids?

¬†Because¬†vaccines¬†are¬†not¬†yet¬†¬†readily¬†available¬†for¬†¬†kids¬†under¬†12,¬†travel¬†is¬†¬†difficult¬†for¬†families¬†with¬†young¬†children.¬†¬†“If¬†your¬†kids¬†are¬†old¬†¬†sufficient¬†to¬†be¬†able¬†to¬†wear¬†masks¬†on¬†a¬†¬†airplane,¬†that¬†certainly¬†would¬†¬†help¬†in¬†reducing¬†the¬†¬†threat¬†a¬†little¬†bit,”¬†Lipps¬†¬†states.

You can  likewise take steps to  reduce your exposure to other people, such as driving in a car versus flying on a  aircraft, and  stay with outdoor activities at your  location, she suggests.

¬†Kullar¬†¬†states¬†it’s¬†best¬†for¬†¬†households¬†with¬†young¬†¬†kids¬†to¬†“wait¬†until¬†this¬†¬†rise¬†¬†has¬†actually¬†come¬†to¬†a¬†plateau”¬†to¬†travel.¬†

Is it safe to fly to Pietermaritzburg?

Pietermaritzburg

Since you’re inside and close to lots of other individuals whose vaccination status you might not know, planes are inherently a little bit riskier. Ensure that you’re totally vaccinated prior to getting on an aircraft. Visiting Pietermaritzburg

¬†Due¬†to¬†the¬†fact¬†that¬†delta¬†is¬†more¬†transmissible¬†than¬†other¬†¬†variations,¬†“there’s¬†a¬†higher¬†¬†possibility,¬†¬†specifically¬†in¬†those¬†airport¬†settings¬†which¬†are¬†¬†inside¬†your¬†home,¬†of¬†putting¬†you¬†at¬†risk¬†and¬†potentially,¬†¬†transferring¬†it¬†and¬†spreading¬†it,”¬†Kullar¬†says.

¬†Everyone¬†wearing¬†masks,¬†which¬†is¬†¬†needed¬†on¬†public¬†¬†transport¬†by¬†federal¬†rules,¬†can¬†reduce¬†the¬†¬†threat¬†of¬†transmission,¬†Lipps¬†says.¬†“Taking¬†the¬†precautions¬†outlined¬†can¬†¬†definitely¬†¬†minimize¬†your¬†¬†opportunity¬†[of¬†infection],”¬†she¬†says.¬†

Kullar¬†says¬†that¬†while¬†masking¬†is¬†mandated¬†and¬†typically¬†enforced¬†by¬†flight¬†attendants¬†while¬†aboard¬†the¬†¬†aircraft,¬†you¬†¬†must¬†also¬†¬†take¬†care¬†while¬†at¬†the¬†airport,¬†where¬†it’s¬†more¬†¬†¬†congested¬†and¬†mask-wearing¬†¬†¬†might¬†not¬†be¬†closely¬†¬†kept¬†track¬†of¬†by¬†staff.

” The airport is most likely the riskiest,” Kullar says. Visiting Pietermaritzburg

According to the CDC,  brief road trips with members of your  family or  totally vaccinated  individuals with  just a  couple of stops along the  method are a  more secure  option.

How do I  understand how bad Covid is in Pietermaritzburg ?

The bottom line is that no  location is zero-risk.

”¬†Covid¬†is¬†¬†simply¬†¬†extensive¬†¬†all¬†over,¬†so¬†there’s¬†going¬†to¬†be¬†some¬†¬†danger¬†regardless¬†of¬†if¬†you’re¬†in¬†a¬†high¬†transmission¬†¬†location¬†versus¬†a¬†lower¬†transmission¬†area,”¬†Lipps¬†¬†states.

Knowing¬†the¬†transmission¬†rate¬†at¬†your¬†¬†location¬†is¬†¬†simply¬†one¬†¬†aspect¬†that¬†can¬†help¬†you¬†consider¬†the¬†overall¬†risk¬†for¬†your¬†¬†journey,¬†Lipps¬†says.¬†¬†If¬†you’re¬†going¬†to¬†a¬†state¬†that¬†the¬†CDC¬†¬†has¬†actually¬†classified¬†¬†substantial¬†or¬†as¬†high¬†¬†transmission,¬†you’ll¬†¬†require¬†to¬†wear¬†masks¬†in¬†public¬†indoor¬†settings¬†whether¬†you’re¬†¬†immunized¬†or¬†not.¬†¬†Some¬†¬†locations¬†now¬†have¬†mask¬†¬†requireds.

The¬†CDC¬†has¬†a¬†map¬†that¬†shows¬†you¬†the¬†level¬†of¬†community¬†transmission¬†by¬†county.¬†You¬†can¬†also¬†check¬†the¬†state¬†or¬†local¬†health¬†department’s¬†website¬†for¬†specific¬†information¬†about¬†your¬†¬†location.

¬†Also,¬†be¬†mindful¬†of¬†the¬†¬†individuals¬†you’re¬†¬†taking¬†a¬†trip¬†with¬†and¬†how¬†their¬†¬†private¬†¬†danger¬†¬†elements¬†play¬†into¬†your¬†¬†choice,¬†Lipps¬†says.¬†

”¬†If¬†you’re¬†¬†preparing¬†on¬†going¬†somewhere¬†where¬†there¬†are¬†¬†really¬†high¬†rates¬†of¬†transmission¬†and¬†you¬†have¬†either¬†unvaccinated¬†¬†kids¬†or¬†¬†grownups¬†who¬†¬†might¬†be¬†immunocompromised¬†or¬†otherwise¬†for¬†high¬†¬†threat,¬†it¬†may¬†be¬†¬†practical¬†to¬†¬†prevent¬†that¬†kind¬†of¬†travel¬†or¬†travel¬†somewhere¬†where¬†there’s¬†¬†possibly¬†less¬†¬†neighborhood¬†transmission,”¬†she¬†¬†states.

The CDC  recommends that you refer to its travel  suggestions by  location  prior to traveling internationally.

What about  taking a trip outside the  nation?

Certain countries don’t have as much access to Covid vaccines, “so you might be traveling to locations where there are far less people immunized than here in the United States,” Lipps states.

And¬†“in¬†most¬†places¬†other¬†than¬†the¬†U.S.,¬†delta¬†is¬†just¬†as¬†much¬†of¬†a¬†concern,¬†if¬†not¬†more¬†in¬†some¬†of¬†the¬†Asian¬†¬†nations,”¬†Kullar¬†says.¬†“I¬†would¬†put¬†a¬†¬†hang¬†on¬†¬†global¬†travel¬†¬†till¬†we’re¬†out¬†of¬†the¬†thick¬†of¬†this.”

Additionally,  regulations and rules  are shifting as situations  alter  around the globe.

On Wednesday, the U.K.  revealed that  tourists from the U.S. and E.U. no longer have to quarantine upon arrival to England or Scotland. And Canada will allow fully  immunized Americans to  get in the country  beginning Aug. 9 for the  very first time since March 2020.

“You¬†¬†need¬†to¬†¬†beware¬†if¬†you’re¬†¬†preparing¬†¬†global¬†trips¬†¬†due¬†to¬†the¬†fact¬†that¬†there¬†may¬†be¬†¬†altering¬†travel¬†¬†limitations¬†¬†showing¬†up¬†that¬†we¬†¬†simply¬†can’t¬†predict¬†at¬†this¬†point,”¬†Lipps¬†¬†states.

 Checking requirements, stay-at-home orders, and quarantine requirements also  differ from  location to  location.

Take the Caribbean Islands, for example, Bermuda  needs that unvaccinated visitors quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. Vaccinated people also have to quarantine in Bermuda  till they  get a  unfavorable PCR test.  In the Bahamas,  completely  immunized people  do not have to get tested or quarantine for entry. 

Another¬†thing¬†to¬†¬†bear¬†in¬†mind¬†if¬†you¬†leave¬†the¬†¬†nation:¬†The¬†CDC¬†¬†needs¬†any¬†¬†travelers¬†¬†concerning¬†the¬†U.S.¬†to¬†have¬†a¬†¬†unfavorable¬†Covid¬†test¬†¬†outcome¬†(or¬†documentation¬†¬†revealing¬†you’ve¬†¬†recuperated¬†from¬†Covid)¬†before¬†they¬†board¬†a¬†flight¬†to¬†the¬†U.S.

Everyone using masks, which is required on public transport by federal guidelines, can minimize the risk of transmission, Lipps states.,” she says. Visiting Pietermaritzburg

Knowing¬†the¬†transmission¬†rate¬†at¬†your¬†¬†location¬†is¬†just¬†one¬†¬†aspect¬†that¬†can¬†¬†assist¬†you¬†consider¬†the¬†overall¬†¬†threat¬†for¬†your¬†trip,¬†Lipps¬†¬†states.¬†¬†Immunized¬†¬†individuals¬†also¬†have¬†to¬†quarantine¬†in¬†Bermuda¬†¬†till¬†they¬†¬†get¬†a¬†¬†unfavorable¬†PCR¬†test.¬†In¬†the¬†Bahamas,¬†¬†totally¬†vaccinated¬†people¬†don’t¬†have¬†to¬†get¬†¬†checked¬†or¬†quarantine¬†for¬†entry.
