Traveling During COVID-19


COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths in the U.S. are rising. It is winter which means more people are indoors. Remember to wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart, avoid crowds, and wash your hands. The more steps you take, the better protected you are against COVID-19.

Traveling can increase your chance of spreading and getting COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Ask yourself:

  • Are you, someone in your house or someone you will be visiting at increased risk for COVID19?
  • Are cases high in your community or destination? The more cases, the more likely of getting COVID-19.
  • Are hospitals in your community or destination seeing an increase in cases?
  • Are hospitals in your community or destination overwhelmed with patients who have COVID-19?
  • Does your home or destination have requirements or restrictions for travelers?
  • During 14 days before travel, have you or those you have been in contact with people you don’t live with?
  • Do your plans include traveling by bus, train, or air which can make social distancing difficult?
  • Are you traveling with people who do not live with you?

If the answer to these questions is yes, consider making other plans, such as delaying travel.
