CNN– Americans are already itching for a vacation, as travel at U.S. airports reached holiday levels over the weekend. The TSA screened more and 2.2 million people Friday.

With that being said, it did not reach pre-pandemic numbers. TSA officials say the high traffic comes as more counties ease COVID-19 restrictions.
