The unvaccinated are on the CDC’s holiday travel naughty list.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidance ahead of the holidays that encouraged people to get their COVID-19 shot before gathering and wear a mask in some cases regardless of vaccination status

And unvaccinated people were advised to stay home altogether.

“CDC still recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated,” the agency said, which is encouraging masks be worn in transit.

“We fully expect that families and friends will gather for the holidays this year and we have updated our guidance on how to best to stay safe over the holidays,” the agency wrote in a statement on Friday. “The best way to minimize COVID risk and ensure that people can safely gather is to get vaccinated or get the booster if you’re eligible.”
