Staying Safe from COVID-19 While Traveling
Travel guidelines continue to evolve. Monitor CDPH and CDC travel guidelines frequently for changes. The CDC recommends that everyone stay up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccines including boosters before traveling.
Do NOT travel if you are sick. You could spread COVID-19 or another infection.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, get tested and wait for a negative test result before you begin your trip. Even if you test negative for COVID-19, you should not travel if you’re feeling ill as you may spread another infection. All travelers who test positive or develop symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate and follow public health recommendations.
