Fully vaccinated Kentuckians can travel domestically

Kentucky is no longer asking its citizens to avoid domestic travel — as long as they’re fully vaccinated. 

Gov. Andy Beshear said Monday that “fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread COVID-19, and we are no longer dissuading domestic travel.”

This comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidance Friday saying “fully vaccinated people can travel at low risk to themselves.” 

A fully vaccinated person is one who has gone two weeks after their Johnson & Johnson vaccine or their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna. 

“If you are vaccinated, Kentucky is no longer asking or advising you to limit domestic travel,” Beshear said. However: “You still need to wear your mask, you’d still need to follow all the protocols.”
