Tips for Travelers

Decide if you can travel safely. Do not travel if you are sick or if you have been around someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days. If you are at higher risk, consider postponing travel. 

Wear a mask. Wearing a mask with two or more layers can help stop the spread of COVID-19. Wear it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin. Make sure it fits snugly against the sides of your face. Avoid touching your mask, eyes, nose and mouth.

Practice physical distancing, when possible. Stay six feet from those who do not live with you, both indoors and outdoors, as even those without symptoms can spread COVID-19.

Wash your hands frequently. Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, including after using the bathroom and being in a public place, or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
