Travel COVID Safe

Heading to or from a trip? Remember COVID-19 prevention strategies, like getting vaccinated, boosted when eligible, accessing testing, staying home if sick, and wearing a well-fitting mask with good filtration help protect yourself and others while traveling. 

Masks is a great way to prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially when in crowded indoor public settings, including on public transportation and in transit centers (airports, planes, trains, buses, stations, etc.). Before you travel, check your current and destination locations' CDC COVID-19 Community Levels to determine prevention strategies to take.

  • When levels are high it is recommended that people who are low risk of severe illness wear masks and it is strongly recommended for those that are at higher risk for sever illness to mask and take additional precautions. 
  • When levels are medium people who are low risk of severe illness consider wearing masks and it is recommended for those that are at higher risk for severe illness to mask and take additional precautions. 
  • When levels are low people who are low risk of severe illness should use personal preferences to determine if they will wear a mask and people who are at higher risk for severed illness should consider wearing a mask and take additional precautions. 
Be sure to follow all local health rules, which may be stricter than statewide rules.
