Travelers respond to plans to lift state travel restrictions – NBC Connecticut | Instant News


“It will be easier and maybe more people will start flying,” said Gary Thompson. It’s T-minus two weeks before the Connecticut travel advisory mandate is lifted. On March 19, the notice will no longer be required but recommended. Passengers like Gary Thompson from California say that while Connecticut’s current travel rules have made him feel safe while visiting, he had reservations. “I was worried that I would have to be quarantined and be in the hotel how many days you were to stay,” Thompson said. Right now, the Connecticut Airports Authority says Bradley International Airport sees 70% fewer travelers than its pre-pandemic traffic levels. Executive Director Kevin Dillon said in a statement Friday: “The CAA is pleased with the governor’s revisions to the travel advisory, and we believe this will pave the way for a subsequent recovery at Bradley Airport. The state’s efficient vaccination process and other measures are helping us beat the pandemic and Bradley Airport will benefit from this new reopening. As of July of last year, the Department of Public Health said more than 248,000 people have completed the Connecticut Travel Health Form in two weeks from today, this form will no longer be mandatory but recommended. “It would be great if they filled out the form, but the resources could be better spent on primary prevention than trying to do the other,” said Amy Lane. Under the new travel advisory recommendation, passengers will no longer be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test or quarantine for 10 days after travel. Nurse practitioner Amy Lane, returning from Florida on Friday, believes that precautions such as hand washing and masks remain the best approach to prevent the spread of the virus. Bradley says he plans to keep his Genesis COVID-19 test site in place for now. The State Department of Public Health said it was only beginning to discuss demobilizing its setup at Bradley. .
