Travel Guidance for COVID-19

Travel can increase your chances of getting COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19. Delay travel and stay home if you are sick or if you have been around someone with COVID-19 within the past 14 days.

If you plan on traveling, wait until you are fully vaccinated if possible. For up-to-date information and travel guidance, check the state, territorial, tribal and local health department where you are, along your route, and where you are going. Prepare to be flexible during your trip as restrictions and policies may change during your travel.  

Stay up to date with the latest travel guidance and requirements:

Be Safe When You Arrive at Your Destination and Return Back Home

Regardless of where you traveled or what you did during your trip, take these actions to protect others from getting sick after you return:

  • When around others, practice social distancing from people who are not from your household. It is important to do this everywhere, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Wear a mask or a cloth face covering.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).
  • Monitor your health and look for symptoms of COVID-19. Take your temperature if you feel sick.
  • If you are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated, get tested 3-5 days after travel and self-quarantine for 7 days. Self-quarantine for 10 days if you don't get tested.
