Covid-19 travel restrictions state by state

Total cases of Covid-19 reached around the 35.2 million mark in the United States by early August 2021. Domestic US travel picked up considerably in the summer of 2021. Very few states had travel restrictions as we entered August.

Despite all the eliminated restrictions, new troubles have emerged. The combination of unvaccinated people and the more contagious Delta strain of coronavirus has led to a new Covid-19 surge in the United States.

As of August 4, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still warned against nonessential travel for people who are not fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to self-quarantine, and they don't need to test negative before or after their travels unless the destination requires it, CDC guidance says.

They are still required to wear masks on public transportation and in transportation hubs such as airports and are advised to wear masks in indoor public places with significant Covid transmission.

If you do decide to travel to another state or territory, you should still check out the latest local guidance before you go. Even though almost all states have dropped their travel restrictions, their official websites have important Covid-19 safety information.
