Do NOT travel if…

  • You are sick.
  • You tested positive for COVID-19 and haven’t ended isolation.
    • After you end isolation, avoid travel until a full 10 days after your symptoms started or the date of your positive test if you had no symptoms.
    • If you must travel on days 6 through 10, properly wear a well-fitting mask when you are around others for the entire duration of travel. If you are unable to wear a mask, you should not travel during days 6 through 10.
  • You had close contact with a person with COVID-19 and haven’t ended quarantine.
    • Get tested at least 5 days after your last close contact and make sure your test result is negative and you remain without symptoms before traveling. If you don’t get tested, delay travel until a full 10 days after your last close contact with a person with COVID-19.
    • If you must travel before the 10 days are completed, properly wear a well-fitting mask when you are around others for the entire duration of travel during the 10 days. If you are unable to wear a mask, you should not travel during the 10 days.
  • You are waiting for results of a COVID-19 test. If your test comes back positive while you are at your destination, you will need to isolate and postpone your return until it’s safe for you to end isolation. Your travel companions may need to quarantine.
