COVID-19 travel advice
As the coronavirus cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are rising across the country this winter, the CDC is strongly urging Americans to stay home—even for the holidays.
Traveling increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. The CDC advises against traveling if you are sick, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been exposed to someone who has the illness.
If you still must travel, find out ways to do it as safely as possible. And before you do, make sure to always check for updates on each state’s travel restrictions, testing, and quarantine guidelines. Some states require quarantining and having proof of a negative COVID-19 test result before you arrive there. It’s also important to know if the state you’ll be visiting requires masks in public areas.
These precautions are necessary until a COVID vaccine is widely available.
