Travel recommendations

Because of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in numerous states across the United States, the Health Department has issued the following recommendations:

  • People should not travel from Philadelphia to any of the red states below if it can be avoided.
  • People traveling to Philadelphia from any of the red states below or from international travel should self-quarantine for 14 days.  If self-quarantine is not practical, they should for 14 days after traveling to Philadelphia:
    • Wear masks at all times at the workplace or near other non-household members, and
    • Monitor closely for the development of new onset of cough, fever, or other COVID-19 symptoms; if these symptoms occur, follow our guidance for isolation (PDF) and get tested for COVID-19.

The CDC website includes useful updates about domestic and international travel.
