Here is also a list of the CDC travel guidelines to follow when traveling:
- During Travel
- Wearing a mask over your face and nose is required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and while indoors at U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. Travelers are not required to wear a mask in outdoor areas of a conveyance (like a ferry or top deck of a bus).
- Follow all state and local recommendations, requirements, including mask wearing and social distancing.
- After Travel
- Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
- Follow all state and local recommendations or requirements.
You do NOT need to get tested or self-quarantine if you are fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months. Regardless, you should still follow all other travel recommendations.
I hope that this article has helped you learn about the various ways the 50 States, D.C., and Puerto Rico have begun to open up, and I hope you are safe and happy.
