Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required in indoor areas of public transportation (including on airplanes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation) traveling into, within, or out of the United States and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs (including airports and stations). Travelers are not required to wear a mask in outdoor areas of a conveyance (like on open deck areas of a ferry or the uncovered top deck of a bus).
Protect Yourself and Others
Follow all state, tribal, local, and territorial health recommendations and requirements at your destination, including properly wearing a well-fitting mask and following recommendations for protecting yourself and others.
Travelers 2 years of age or older should wear well-fitting masks in indoor public places if they are:
NOT up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines
Up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines and in an area with substantial or high COVID-19 transmission
Up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines and with weakened immune systems
In general, you do not need to wear a mask in outdoor settings.
In areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases, consider properly wearing a well-fitting mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines.
Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
You might have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. You might feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still be infected and spread the virus to others.
If you are NOT Up to Date with your COVID-19 Vaccines
Self-quarantine and get tested after travel:
Get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after returning from travel.
Check for COVID-19 testing locations near you.
Stay home and self-quarantine for a full 5 days after travel.
Follow additional recommendations below for ALL travelers.
Follow all state, tribal, local, and territorial recommendations or requirements after travel.
If Your Test is Positive or You Develop COVID-19 Symptoms
If You Recently Recovered from COVID-19
You do NOT need to get tested or quarantine if you recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days. You should still follow all other travel recommendations. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms after travel, isolate and consult with a healthcare provider for testing recommendations.
