Domestic travel (state-to-state)
- No quarantine is necessary if the traveler is fully vaccinated, which is defined as 2 weeks after the second dose of a 2-dose COVID-19 vaccine or 2 weeks after receiving a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
- Proof of vaccination or negative test results will be required to avoid quarantines.
- Individual must not have symptoms and must maintain strict masking and physical distancing. If a fully vaccinated individual does have symptoms, he or she must quarantine and consult with a healthcare expert.
- Domestic travel in states designated Orange on the Chicago Emergency Travel Order map requires:
- 10-day quarantine upon return if there is no negative pre-arrival test or the traveler is not fully vaccinated (see above for definition of fully vaccinated) OR
- Pre-arrival negative test (within 72 hours prior to arrival) with strict masking, physical distancing and avoidance of in-person gatherings (separate from school attendance)
- For domestic travel in states designated as Yellow on the Chicago Emergency Travel Order map, no quarantine or pre-arrival test are required. However, travelers must maintain strict masking and physical distancing.
Regardless of vaccination status, international travelers must follow CDC guidelines:
- Traveler is to be tested 3-5 days after their return to the U.S. and must quarantine for a 7-day period even if the post-arrival test is negative.
- If traveler chooses not to take a test 3-5 days after their return to the U.S., he or she must quarantine for 10 days after arrival.
