WA State – New Travel Guidance in Line with CDC Guidance

WA State – New Travel Guidance in Line with CDC Guidance

The Governor has updated the recommendations: Travelers & Commuters | Washington State Coronavirus Response (COVID-19) to align with the CDC guidance.

If you must travel, take steps to protect yourself and others:

  • If you are eligible, get fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
  • Before you travel, get tested with a viral test 1-3 days before your trip.
  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public.
  • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who did not travel with you.
  • Get tested 3-5 days after your trip and stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel, even if your test is negative. If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • People fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can travel within the United States and do not need COVID-19 testing or post-travel self-quarantine as long as they continue to take precautions while traveling; wear a mask, avoid crowds, and wash hands frequently.
