Vaccinated Americans can take off that mask!

In an update today from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fully vaccinated Americans can now mostly conduct their daily routines and travel without wearing a mask to guard against COVID-19. The information as it relates to fully vaccinated Americans for domestic and international travel includes:

  • SAR-CoV-2 viral tests are not required before or after domestic U.S. travel unless required by local or state authorities.
  • Self-quarantine is no longer required after domestic U.S. travel.
  • Masks are still recommended when traveling in the U.S. and are required on public transportation and at transportation hubs, such as at airports and train stations.
  • Continue to socially distance with people who are not traveling with you.
  • Continue washing hands often and using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • For international travel, entry into the U.S. still requires a negative COVID-19 test within three days of the return to the U.S.
  • After international travel, get a COVID-19 test within 5 days of your return.

“This is a very promising development that is just another step toward the resumption of widespread travel,” said Paul Hardersen, CEO of Naked Pirate Travels LLC. “While the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet over, we are hopeful that the continuing vaccination campaigns in the U.S. and around the world will end the pandemic later in 2021, which will witness the resurgence of both domestic and international travel. The U.S. travel industry has already begun an initial rebound and we are working toward the day when we can all travel again — safely, responsibly, and in a sustainable manner.”

The Pirates are happy to announce that Rebecca Simon, Ph.D., pirate historian, is joining the team at Naked Pirate Travels. Dr. Simon will be working with the Pirates to develop a unique, immersive, and historically-focused itinerary for our first pirate-themed Caribbean sail, which will occur early February 2023. Her expertise, insight, and knowledge will be invaluable as we develop the itinerary for the sail, which is being crafted to give people an authentic, fun, and engaging exploration of the real piracy in the Caribbean that took place in the 17th and 18th Centuries. Dr. Simon will also serve as the travel host for the February 2023 sail and will lead our exploration of the Bahamas for a week.

Rebecca Simon, Ph.D. Dr. Rebecca Simon, a Los Angeles native, has a Ph.D. in the history of 18th-century piracy from King’s College London.
