Travel agency employees at the airport commented that there is concern among Mexican travelers that their travel plans to the United States could be complicated if they do not complete their vaccination schedule in the next few weeks.

In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) would contact travelers who have any exposure to covid-19. The American Travel Association (ASTA) said, "We urge the Biden Administration to finalize this plan as quickly as possible or else make the resumption of safe international travel through open borders an immediate priority," ASTA said in a statement, adding, "The travel industry as a whole will not recover from covid-19 until international travel resumes in earnest.
