The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is imploring Americans to stay home and avoid travel during Labor Day weekend if they are unvaccinated.

On Sunday, the CDC reported a seven-day moving average of 129,418 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and noted that more than 93% of counties across the country are seeing widespread community transmission, according to Fox News.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during a Tuesday White House briefing that unvaccinated Americans should not travel during Labor Day weekend and put themselves — and others — at risk, CNN reported.

As for even fully vaccinated Americans, Walensky said to weigh the risk of traveling during the busy holiday weekend and consider their options.

“First and foremost, if you are unvaccinated, we would recommend not traveling,” Walensky said during the White House briefing, adding that while fully vaccinated Americans can travel with “precautions,” they still need to consider the possibility that they may become infected with COVID-19 amid the ongoing Delta variant surge.
