Reduce Your Risk: Travel Safely   

Traveling to or from California? Help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by following current CDC travel guidelines. Read the CDC’s full travel guidance: if you are traveling with children who cannot get vaccinated at this time, follow recommendations for unvaccinated people and choose the safer travel options.
 

Delay Travel (Both Domestic and International) Until You’re Fully Vaccinated

If you’re fully vaccinated, you can travel more safely within the United States (and you don’t need to test or quarantine). If you’re fully vaccinated and traveling internationally, follow CDC testing guidelines for international travel before and after your return to the US. Please follow all CDC, California, and Marin County masking guidelines.

Please stay informed of CDC Destination Travel Alerts that will warn you about high transmission rates in an area.
 

If You Are NOT Vaccinated, But Choose to Travel, Get Tested Before and After

If you are not vaccinated, but choose to travel domestically, get tested with a viral test 1–3 days before travel and 3–5 days after travel. Also, even if you test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel. If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days
after travel.

If you’re not vaccinated, and traveling internationally, follow CDC testing guidelines for international travel before and after your return to the US. This includes wearing a mask, avoiding crowds, and washing hands often.

ALWAYS Wear a Mask on Public Transportation (Regardless of Your Vaccination Status)

Everyone must wear a mask at all times on public transportation (including airports, planes, trains, buses, stations, etc.) into, within, or out of the U.S.

If you plan to travel, learn more about how to travel safely on public transportation. And remember, if you plan to travel with your unvaccinated children, verify in advance your child’s school about their quarantine policy following travel.
