Holiday travelers crowd the ticketing area of terminal one Wednesday, Nov. 25, at MSP in Minneapolis. Travel experts were predicting Wednesday to be the busiest travel day in the U.S. since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic earlier in 2020, despite CDC warnings against travel during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Don't travel over the upcoming holidays. But if you must, consider getting coronavirus tests before and after, U.S. health officials urged Wednesday.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the best way to stay safe and protect others is to stay home.

The agency also announced new guidelines that shorten recommended quarantines after close contact with someone infected with coronavirus. The agency said the risk in a shorter quarantine is small, but that the change makes following the guidance less of a hardship.
