Latest Travel Information
Snohomish Health District is following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) travel guidance during the holiday season. The full guidance can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html.
The guidance for domestic travelers (within the United States or to a U.S. territory) is as follows: Those travelling internationally must show a negative COVID-19 viral test taken no more than 1 day before travel to the U.S. regardless of vaccination status. International travelers should consult the CDC international travel website and flowchart for more information about this and other travel requirements.
Fully vaccinated travelers:
- Those individuals who develop COVID-19 symptoms should self-isolate and consult with a healthcare provider for testing recommendations.
- Masks are required on all public transportation.
- Do not travel if you are sick, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive.
Travelers of any age who are not fully vaccinated and have not recovered from COVID-19 (tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 and met criteria to discontinue isolation) in the past 90 days (domestic and international):
- Fully vaccinated travelers are not recommended to get a SARS-CoV-2 viral test after domestic travel, unless they are symptomatic or testing is required by local, state, or territorial health authorities.
- Fully vaccinated travelers do not need to self-quarantine following domestic travel.
Travelers who recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days
- It is recommended that those who are not fully vaccinated get a viral COVID-19 test 1 to 3 days before their trip.
- These travelers are recommended to have a post-arrival test 3-5 days after arrival at destination, combined with self-monitoring and a 7-day period of staying home (or in a comparable location such as a hotel room) or otherwise self-quarantining.
- The 7-day period should be completed even if the test is negative.
- In the absence of testing, this period should be extended to 10 days.
