As of April 18, 2022, masks on public transportation in the United States are no longer required. Read further for the latest CDC recommendations for traveling safely.
Here is the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding safety measures against the COVID-19 virus.
As of April 18, 2022, the CDC order from January 2021 requiring masks on public transportation has been lifted. Masks on public transportation and in public transportation hubs such as train stations are no longer legally required, but the CDC still recommends wearing masks or proper face coverings in all public spaces.
Before boarding a flight to the United States, you are required to present a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 1 day before travel. All air passengers must also provide contact information to airlines to aid in contact tracing of COVID-19.
Here are some additional protective measures to continue taking as you travel:
Do not travel if:
If you are not recommended to quarantine and it is essential that you travel during days 6 through 10, be sure to get tested for COVID-19 at least 5 days after your exposure to the virus. If you test negative and are free of symptoms, wear your mask while around people. You should not travel if you are unable to wear a mask.
If your COVID-19 test comes back positive while you are at your destination, you must postpone your trip home. You and any travel companions you may have must isolate and quarantine until it is safe for you to travel again.
It is also recommended that you get tested for COVID-19 again 3-5 days after your arrival in the United States. Testing locations near your destination can be found here.
