Things are looking up for the nation’s airlines, travelers, and American voters. Finally, some good news. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued new guidelines for people who would like to travel after they have had their COVID-19 vaccine(s). Vacation time for our un-young. It will not be long before the nation is on the move again, if people continue getting their vaccinations.

Chicago-based United Airlines just became the fourth of the top airlines to criticize the Republican legislators’ new election moves on Monday. Its statement read, according to The Newsweek magazine:

‘Our mission is to connect people and unite the world. We believe that one of the most effective ways to do this is to engage in the democratic process, which begins with voting—a vital civic duty. America’s democracy is stronger when we’re all engaged, and every vote is properly counted.’

The airline’s tweeted message continued:

‘Some have questioned the integrity of the nation’s election system and are using it to justify stricter voting procedures, even though numerous studies have found zero credible evidence of widespread fraud in U.S. elections. Legislation that infringes on the right to vote of fellow Americans is wrong,” the statement reads. “We believe that leaders in both parties should work to protect the rights of eligible voters by making it easier and more convenient for them to cast a ballot and have it counted.’

The Texas Senate has already been nudging a bill forward:

‘[To] limit early voting hours, prohibit drive-through voting, and ban local election officials from proactively sending absentee ballots to eligible voters.’

Americans Airlines, which is based in another state eyeing Florida’s and Georgia’s new laws, Texas, also released its statement:

‘To make American’s stance clear: We are strongly opposed to this bill and others like it. As a Texas-based business, we must stand up for the rights of our team members and customers who call Texas home, and honor the sacrifices made by generations of Americans to protect and expand the right to vote.’

In a memo to employees, Atlanta-based Delta CEO Ed Bastian blasted the state’s voting law, saying it was “unacceptable and does not match Delta’s values:”

‘After having time to now fully understand all that is in the bill, coupled with discussions with leaders and employees in the Black community, it’s evident that the bill includes provisions that will make it harder for many underrepresented voters, particularly Black voters, to exercise their constitutional right to elect their representatives. That is wrong.’

Another Texas headquartered airline, Southwest, sent an email to The Forbes magazine:

‘The right to vote is foundational to our democracy and a right coveted by all. We believe every voter should have a fair opportunity to let their voice be heard. This right is essential to our nation’s success.’

The CDC, the nation’s public health agency announced on Friday:

‘[R]ecent studies evaluating the real-world effects of vaccination [and] fully vaccinated people can travel at low risk to themselves.’

The agency continued noting that COVID-19 testing prior to or after travel was not any longer necessary unless the destination country required it:

‘[A] person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of vaccine..COVID-19 testing or post-travel self-quarantine, but [travelers should continue] wearing a mask, avoiding crowds, socially distancing, and washing hands frequently.’

The Motley Fool wrote this about the CDC news:

‘[I[nvestors appear to take the news as a “positive development.”‘
