Google updates Street View on mobile, you can now ‘time travel’

Google has taken to its blog to announce that it’s Street View’s 15th birthday, and with its birthday comes some new upgrades for users and Street View’s camera.

Google explains that Street View originally started as a “far fetched idea” from Google co-founder Larry Page, but now the application is comprised of more than 220 billion images from over 100 countries and territories, which makes up the world’s largest 360-degree map. Even though Google Maps and Street View have come further than Google could have imagined when the ideas were first conceived, the company states that it’s still planning improvements.

Street View will be getting a new camera system that will allow Street View to keep up with the extremely fast pace the world changes. The camera will weigh less than 15 pounds, be customizable, features lidar, laser scanners, and more. Additionally, the new camera will also be able to fit onto any car, making it easier for Google’s partners around the world. Lastly, Google states that the new camera will appear on iconic Street View cars next year.

Street View users are also getting a new feature to play with, as users on Android and iOS are now able to “travel back in time” with Street View images.

When you’re viewing Street View imagery of a place, tap anywhere on the photo to see information about the location. Then tap “See more dates” to see the historical imagery we’ve published of that place, dating back to when Street View launched in 2007. Browse each of the images to see a digital time capsule that shows how a place has changed – like how the Vessel in New York City’s Hudson Yards grew from the ground up,” writes Google.

CDC updates COVID-19 testing guidance for travelers

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) -Summer travel is right around the corner and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its COVID-19 testing guidance for travelers, including those taking vacations within the United States. The agency is now advising everyone, including those vaccinated and boosted, to get a COVID-19 test no more than three days before a trip.

Western Mass News took questions to a local travel expert to see how this might impact the upcoming vacation season and spoke with one local doctor to find out his thoughts about this updated COVID-19 guidance for travelers.

“We’re still kind of surging this omicron wave and we haven’t really peaked yet. The expectation is we’re going to get more cases and significantly more over the next two to four weeks,” said Dr. Esteban Delpilar, infectious disease doctor for Baystate Health.

New COVID-19 guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends that all travelers get a COVID-19 test at least three days before taking a trip, even if it’s within the United States. Western Mass News spoke with an infectious disease doctor from Baystate Health, to see if he believes this is a good added measure.

“You want to make sure that you’re okay before you leave and if you develop symptoms when you get there or when you come back you want to know was it something that was already incubating when I was still home and just developed symptoms wherever I went or was it something that I caught where I was and brought it back home,” said Dr. Delpilar.

The CDC previously recommended testing before traveling for people who were not vaccinated or up to date with their booster shots and still requires it for international travelers coming into the United States. AAA spokesperson Mark Schieldrop told us that despite the CDC’s recent updated COVID-19 travel guidance. He expects travel to return to 2019 levels as Memorial Day approaches.

“At this point in the pandemic, most people at this stage either feel comfortable about traveling or don’t, so a lot of folks have been flying over the past year,” said Schieldrop.

We asked Shieldrop for advice for travelers if they do end up testing positive before vacation.

“If there is a concern about your trip getting canceled or a similar issue because of COVID, that’s one reason, why we really encourage people to get trip insurance and make sure when you get that trip insurance there is a provision in there to cover covid related situations,” said Shieldrop.

Shieldrop also believes people traveling domestically will follow the CDC’s advice and take a COVID-19 test ahead of traveling.

“For many people stocking up on test kits and testing before you fly is a good idea and I think a lot of people will be doing that,” said Shieldrop.

Shieldrop also recommends that travelers continue to look to the CDC for the latest travel guidance.

CDC Updates US Travel Guidance with New Recommendations

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its coronavirus testing recommendations for Americans looking to travel domestically.

According to, the CDC announced domestic travelers should “consider getting tested as close to the time of departure as possible,” regardless of vaccination status. The government agency said the testing should occur no more than three days before the trip.


Trending Now

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.

Previously, the CDC recommended that only unvaccinated Americans get tested before traveling within the United States. Now, the agency has updated the recommendations, but stopped short of issuing a mandate.

In addition to testing before domestic travel, CDC officials said Americans should take a COVID-19 test following their vacations, especially if they visit crowded areas or regions with a high number of infections.

Health officials reminded U.S. travelers to remain vigilant when on the road, keeping in mind that local rules and conditions are likely to be different.

Earlier this month, the CDC announced that people traveling on public forms of transportation should still be wearing a mask for protection against coronavirus. The agency’s mask requirements for airlines, airports and other forms of transportation were struck down by a federal judge in April, ending the controversial mandate after almost two years.

In the aviation industry, U.S. airlines are continuing a full-court press on the Biden Administration to drop the rules requiring pre-departure testing for COVID-19 on all international passengers. Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany and several other foreign countries have had similar protocols in place but have since lifted them.

Disney Cruise Line Updates COVID-19 Pre-Sailing Procedures

Disney Cruise Line recently updated its COVID-19 pre-sailing protocols for all sailings that embark from a U.S. or Canadian port on or after June 7, 2022.

The cruise company is still enforcing its rule that all eligible guests five years and up must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. In addition, Disney Cruise Line is requiring all passengers must also complete COVID-19 testing prior to boarding their cruise.


Trending Now

Those passengers who are ineligible to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 – because of their age – must provide a negative COVID-19 test result with the test being taken no more than three days before their sailing. Tests will be paid for by the guest.

Accepted tests are Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT), rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test. A second test will also be required at the time of boarding at the cruise terminal. This test will be provided by Disney Cruise Line and administered by Inspire Diagnostics.

Passengers who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will also need to present proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than two days before they sail. Accepted tests can be:

– A rapid antigen test professionally observed by a medical professional through a medical facility or telehealth provider

– Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT); or

– Rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test

Guests will need to upload their negative COVID-19 test results to Disney Cruise Line’s Safe Passage website by midnight the day before they sail. Failure to meet this requirement will result in the passenger being required to take – and pay the $74 + tax for the initial antigen test, and, if needed, $125 + tax for a confirmatory PCR test, charged at the time of service.

Passengers with confirmed bookings will receive a SeaMail with this information, or this information can be found at Disney Cruise Line’s ‘Know Before You Sail’ website.
