travel. these new revised guidelines will make it easier for people who are fully vaccinated to fly. ktvu greg looking. joining us live tonight with those details, greg? yeah christina, it appears the turbulent times of air travel is beginning to get a lot smoother, at least here domestically and with 17% of the u. s population now vaccinated the changes to the cdc travel guidelines should make it easier for people in that particular group. to fly on a plane. us air travel has recently started taking off and for some getting vaccinated has factored into flying. i like to travel. i was doing a lot of traveling before covid and i wanted to get back out there, even those not vaccinated say their confidence has increased. yes, for sure. 100% airports like sfo resembled a ghost town a year ago, but have recently seen a significant increase in activity. we know that there is pent up. demand we're starting
to see a little bit of that at sfo in terms of some of the highest numbers of passengers we've seen during the pandemic. demand is seen in the numbers from the t. essa april 1st of last year, only 124,000 passengers went through airport security domestically, but that number climbed to 1.5 million this year and has remained above a million since mid march. revised cdc guidelines say people who are fully vaccinated can travel domestically safely. no. longer needing a negative covid test unless their destination requires it. the fully vaccinated also no longer need to self quarantine after arriving at their travel destination, and really, this is. with vaccinations rolling out. i think the industry is looking to the cdc to say, look, let's make it easier for people who have been vaccinated to feel good about traveling. the vaccine gave these grand parents from texas a shot of confidence to trade roadways for runways to visit family in the bay. the previous times have gone since covid have all
been driving, and we didn't really feel safe. traveling, but we've both been vaccinated as the tight grip of covid loosens. so do the restrictions and getting from point a to b as everyone waits to see if they can continue traveling safely to make more memories. we had an awesome time. awesome time. now vaccinated or not, a federal mandate still requires mask wearing on planes, busses, trains and other forms of public transportation. and of course, social distancing, as well as frequent hand washing is still highly encouraged on the horizon. the cdc says it will soon issue some new guidelines for the cruise industry. christina greg gilligan's reporting live for us tonight, greg. thank you. and it seems a lot of people are hitting the road as well. the monterey peninsula is seeing an increase in tourism this week. today the fisherman's warf area or monterey. excuse me. monterey's
fisherman's war look like pre pandemic times, except people were wearing masks, restaurants and hotels. they're recording hordes of visitors from the bay area in central valley, local hospitality leaders say this is shaping up to be one of the busiest weekends in more than a year. you know people are ready to travel, and, more importantly, they're not going overseas. they're staying closer to home and they're all within driving distance. for some school district's this week is also spring break, which may be adding to the increase in tourism. so today. good friday a solemn religious state for christians around the world leading to easter sunday and after a year of online virtual services, many churches in the bay area or welcoming back their congregants in person for holy week, and his ktvu is and rubin explains. they had a big turnout for good friday, and they're expecting even bigger numbers. easter sunday. somewhere at bethel church in san jose, congregants
gathered for good friday, something many hadn't done in months. it's a miracle and a prayer come true. it was a chance to see friends to worship together just to see some kind of expression and people not through a zoom, call on be able to celebrate a moment like this, something that's really crucial to our faith. it's on a deeper level, i would say bethel has taken a hybrid. approach to holy week. their largest presence is still online. then they have drivin services, and finally, they're offering indoor services to socially distanced and with masks. i think that's given people a level of comfort, and there's nothing quite like being together in the building. they're expecting a big turnout for easter. so is the diocese of san jose. or the holy church of god. some parishes are offering extra masses some are offering to simultaneously on different parts of their campus. all are expecting people to register ahead of time. bishop
oscar cantu says the isolation of this pandemic has left people craving togetherness that effects us emotionally and effective, spiritually as well. that we need not only to connect directly with god, but we need to connect with each other as a community. and so i've seen a hunger for that the diocese has been ramping up into our services is the county and people's comfort allowed. bethel just resumed indoor services last week. as we come into easter sunday, i mean, we're we've already got 11 sunday under our belt, and we're ready to go and the congregation is ready to. we didn't get to have church inside last year, but this year we finally get to get together, have community and celebrate. easter each church is doing things a bit differently, so it pays to do your research and register ahead of time and again, many of those churches are keeping their online and outdoor options as well. and
it's okay that you don't want to be first: you aren't. second covid vaccine. it's okay to have questions: everyone deserves answers. i'm wary that there isn't enough information. it's okay to be excited, or worried, or both. it's alright for it to take whatever it takes for you to be ready. hi mom, ready for your shot? yes, i've been waiting for this day. we just got what? vaccinated. we just got vaccinated! let's get you there. let's get to immunity. around 9 10 tonight along the
