What You Need to Know

Protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

Get up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines before you travel.
Consider getting tested before travel.
Follow CDC’s recommendations for wearing masks in travel and public transportation settings.
Get tested after travel if your travel involved situations with greater risk of exposure such as being in crowded places while not wearing a high-quality mask or respirator.

Check your destination’s COVID-19 Community Level before traveling. State, tribal, local, and territorial governments may have travel restrictions in place.

Before You Travel
Make sure to plan ahead:

Get up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines before you travel.

Find out when you can get your booster and where to get a vaccine or booster.
COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting people—especially those who are boosted— from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and even dying.

Check the current COVID-19 Community Level at your destination.

If traveling to an area with high or medium COVID-19 Community Levels, and you are, live with, or are visiting someone who is at higher risk of getting very sick, learn how to protect yourself and them.

Make sure you understand and follow all state, tribal, local, and territorial travel restrictions, including proper mask wearing, proof of vaccination, or testing requirements.

For up-to-date information and travel guidance, check the state, tribal, local and territorial health department’s website where you are, along your route, and where you are going.

If traveling by air, check if your airline requires any testing, vaccination, or other documents.
Prepare to be flexible during your trip as restrictions and policies may change during your travel.
If you have a weakened immune system or are at increased risk for severe disease, take multiple prevention steps to provide additional layers of protection from COVID-19 even if you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines.

Talk to your healthcare provider about your risk before travel and consider delaying travel to areas with high COVID-19 Community levels. Even if you are up to date, you should know what precautions to take.

View CDC’s full list of individual and community recommendations for each level.
