map of the United States

CDC recommends you stay home and avoid all nonessential travel within the United States. This includes travel of any distance (across town, state and country) by air, bus, train and car. COVID-19 is spreading in every state, and travel increases your chances of getting and spreading the virus. This guidance does not apply to workers in critical infrastructure industriesexternal icon.

The State or local government where you are may have issued orders or provided guidance more restrictive than these federal guidelines. In that case, follow the state or local orders and guidance.

If you must travel, take steps to help prevent getting and spreading COVID-19.

CDC also recommends that you avoid all nonessential international travel (see: COVID-19 Travel Recommendations by Country).
