TCHD recommends you stay home as much as possible, especially if your trip is not essential, and practice social distancing especially if you are at higher risk of severe illness. Don’t travel if you are sick or travel with someone who is sick. For more information on traveling review the CDC’s Travel guidance.
If you are planning on Traveling
Some travel is considered essential. If you must travel, review the CDC’s specific guidance for travelers and Frequently Asked Questions and Answers. If you must travel, follow any state and local travel restrictions currently in place. It is possible that some state and local governments may put in place travel restrictions, stay-at-home or shelter-in-place orders, mandated quarantines upon arrival, or even state border closures while you are traveling. For more information and travel guidance, check with the state or local health department where you are, along your route, and at your planned destination.
Travelers should avoid contact with sick people and wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Travelers should monitor their health and limit interactions with others for 14 days after returning from travel.
Travelers that are sick with fever, cough, or have trouble breathing should stay home and call ahead before seeking medical care.
