The CDC is also recommending people get a second Covid test after returning to the states.

For those who might be afraid of getting stuck in another country, many resorts are doing their best to help travelers.

“Once you arrive on property, you set up with your concierge your test to be taken 3 days before returning home, if it comes back positive then some properties are offering to put you up at their cost for 14 days,” said Wilbeck

Even with all these precautions being put in place, Biden knows there is still a long way to go before this pandemic is over but wanted to make one thing clear to the american people.

“We will get through this; we will defeat this pandemic,” said Biden
