State Travel Restrictions


Current as of May 11, 2021

IMPORTANT NOTICE: At this time there are NO requirements for a 14-day quarantine when you return to Florida from travel or a vacation, except international or cruise travel.

To view whether any changes have been made to the travel restrictions, visit the CDC travel website and click on the state you want to visit. Or you can search the terms “coronavirus travel restrictions _____” (add the name of the state).

No one wants to quarantine while on vacation. Know Before You Go and make sure there are no restrictions on your travel.


States/Cities/Territories that Have a Requirement: Know Before You Travel
Please adhere to these requirements.

    • Hawaii
      Currently, all visitors and residents arriving into Hawaii MUST adhere to the 10-day quarantine. Starting October 1, 2020, out-of-state travelers can avoid a 10-day quarantine requirement if they can present a recent negative COVID-19 test. Hawaii airports will not be providing testing. Travelers who cannot present a negative test will need to quarantine for 10 days. All travelers will still be required to fill out a travel form.

    • Illinois - City of Chicago
      As of May 7, 2021, there were no statewide restrictions in Illinois, but visitors heading to Chicago have been placed in two categories: Orange & Yellow. People from an "Orange" state must quarantine for 10 days unless they have a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 72 hours old or have been vaccinated and meet inoculation guidelines. Travelers coming from a yellow state do not need to quarantine or take a prearrival test, but they are asked to wear a mask and social distance.

    • Massachusetts
      All travelers arriving in Massachusetts are instructed to self-quarantine for 10 days. Should you be able to produce a negative test within 72 hours of travel, you will not have to quarantine while in the state. 

    • New Mexico
      By Executive Order, all travelers to New Mexico MUST quarantine for 14 days.

    • Oregon
      People arriving in Oregon from other states or countries, including returning Oregon residents, are encouraged to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival. Nonessential travel, which includes tourism, is discouraged.

    • Puerto Rico
      All persons entering Puerto Rico must:
      • Complete a travel declaration
      • Arrive with proof of a negative COVID-19 molecular-based test

    • Rhode Island
    • Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to quarantine if it's been at least 14 days since your final vaccine, and you have not shown symptoms of Covid-19 before traveling to Rhode Island. Unvaccinated international travelers must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival. Quarantine time can be shortened to seven days if you receive a negative Covid-19 test at least five days after you've arrived. Unvaccinated domestic travelers must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival or show proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of arrival if coming from a state considered a "hot spot."

 

  • Vermont
    Vermont has issued updated travel guidance for its phased reopening. Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to test or quarantine. Unvaccinated people must get a PCR test for COVID-19 taken no more than three days upon arrival. If the result is negative, no quarantine is required.

  • Washington, DC
    Visitors are asked to get a test within 72 hours of traveling, and if the test is positive, don't travel. A PCR test is preferred over an antigen test. If you're visiting DC for more than three days, you are asked to limit activities until you get a second test three to five days after your arrival. If that result is negative, you can expand what you do.

    There are notable exceptions that don't require testing:
    • If you have been fully vaccinated within 90 days and do not have COVID-19 symptoms.
    • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 90 days and don't have symptoms now.
    • If you're from a list of states that's updated periodically.

    CDC recommends that all people defer travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, worldwide. That’s because the risk of COVID-19 on cruise ships is high. Older adults and people with serious chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease, should especially defer travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, because of their increased risk for severe disease.

    Passengers who return from a cruise ship or river cruise voyage are advised to stay home for 14 days, monitor their health, and practice social distancing.

    CDC has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for cruise ship travel.
