At a White House COVID Response Team briefing on Tuesday, CDC director Rochelle Walensky strongly encouraged unvaccinated Americans to refrain from traveling during the Labor Day holiday weekend.

“First and foremost, if you are unvaccinated, we would recommend not traveling,” she said.

While she signaled that fully vaccinated people should feel free to travel if they wear masks, she said they too should exercise caution and think carefully before opting to travel amid the Delta-variant surge. “Given where we are with disease transmission right now, we would say that people need to take their own — these risks into their own consideration as they think about traveling,” Walensky said.

President Biden, Walensky, and other government health experts have directed blame at those who have abstained from receiving the shot for the prolonged COVID crisis, repeatedly calling it a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
