Do You Favor A COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement For Air Travel?
Just about 15% of Americans are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with more people growing interested in getting vaccinated than a month ago.
Cases of coronavirus seem to be plateauing for the most part in the U.S. but experts are warning of another surge if folks don't adhere to social distancing and mask guidelines with respect to the new, more contagious variants.
With that said, travel is at the highest it's been since the pandemic began just one year ago.
American Airlines CEO Doug Parker said yesterday (March 15th), "Our last three weeks have been the best three weeks since the pandemic hit, and each week has been better than the one prior." Airlines also say more people are booking flights for the spring and summer. Despite the improvement, passenger traffic is still down more than 50 percent this month compared to March 2019. -AP
Marjo who loves to travel (a least twice a year) said on-air this morning, "Why would you put yourself in an enclosed space with a lot of people with a lack of fresh air in the middle of a pandemic?"
It was reported that a growing number of Americans would like to see a vaccine requirement for air travel, both domestically and internationally.
A majority - 62% - said unvaccinated people should not be allowed to travel on airplanes. Fifty-five percent agreed that unvaccinated people should not work out at public gyms, enter movie theaters or attend public concerts. -reuters.com
