Traveling for the Holidays?

Those who may be traveling for the holidays can find a wealth of information on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website — from a COVID-19 Data Tracker for the U.S., travel recommendations by destinations, changes to international travel requirements, and mask, testing and vaccine requirements for air travel, as well as best practices for safe gatherings with family and friends during the holiday season.

The CDC says you should NOT travel if:

  • You have been exposed to COVID-19 unless you are fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days.
  • You are sick.
  • You tested positive for COVID-19 and haven’t ended isolation (even if you are fully vaccinated).
  • 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 self-quarantine.
