These states still require travelers to self-quarantine or present negative COVID-19 test
The states are reopening, but that doesn't mean that travelers in the coronavirus pandemic can come and go as they please.
USA TODAY has updated the states that discourage interstate travel by quarantining or recommending visitors and residents returning from other states. And some states require a recent COVID-19 negative test instead of a blanket quarantine directive.
Some districts or municipalities have given travelers similar advice. So if you want to go on a trip or a summer vacation, look for your destination on government websites and wherever you want to stop overnight.
Here are the states that need or recommend travel quarantines:
Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy and the State Department of Health and Social Services lifted the mandatory 14-day quarantine for travelers. Both interstate and international travelers can come to Alaska if they meet the following requirements:
If tested within 72 hours to five days of leaving their destination, they can come to Alaska with evidence of a negative PCR coronavirus test. You cannot participate if the test is positive.
Alternatively, if you had a negative PCR test within five days of your departure, you can retest on arrival in Alaska. You should minimize contact until the results of the second test are available.
If travelers want to test on arrival, they should register with the test site and quarantine until the results are available. The traveler must be quarantined if this is positive.
If the traveler is a member of the government-appointed critical infrastructure workforce, they must adhere to their company's community protection plan saved by the government.
If none of the above applies (the traveler has no test result, refuses to test, or is not a critical contributor), that person must be quarantined for 14 days.
Travelers who already had COVID-19 and who tested positive at least three weeks before their arrival are currently asymptomatic and can present a letter to the doctor confirming their recovery. You don't need to be retested.
While the state no longer prescribes 14-day quarantine for visitors, it still urges the Arcans to take this into account when they return from the trip to the affected areas.
The state does not currently require incoming travelers to quarantine themselves, but asks residents returning from abroad to do so for 14 days.
