For many, the pandemic is not putting a stop to summer travel. A new wave of COVID-19 has created spikes in different states, including Arizona, which has been marked as one of the worst states for COVID-19 per capita in the world.
Due to the large spike in cases in Arizona, many states are requiring Arizonans quarantine for two weeks when arriving in their state. Which means if you plan to visit to one of the following states, you will need to plan to stay put for 14 days, before your summer fun can begin.
Here are the states with travel restrictions:
**Illinois doesn’t have statewide travel restrictions but the city of Chicago does. Chicago is requiring Arizonans to quarantine for 14 days.
Alaska is different than other states. They are providing travelers with a few options – a complete traveler declaration form which you can find HERE along with a proof of a qualifying negative COVID-19 test OR you must take a COVID-19 test you arrive and then self-quarantine till results arrive at your own expense.
Here are the states with no travel restrictions so far:
Some states are broader by requiring any people from out of state to quarantine for 14 days. For example, in Vermont, you must complete a 14-day or 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in your home state before arriving in the state.
All states do recommend that if you feel sick, have a cough or can’t breathe well to avoid traveling and contact with other people. Per the CDC, “Do not travel if you are sick, or if you have been around someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days. Do not travel with someone who is sick.”
If you continue to travel as planned, practice social distancing and wash hands or use hand sanitizer, and don’t forget to wear a mask at all times when out in public or with people who you do not live with.
