As of November, these are the states with COVID-19 travel restrictions.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, travel restrictions are constantly emerging—and not just internationally. In the summer, a number of state travel restrictions were implemented to help tame spiking numbers and to preserve hard-fought decreasing infection numbers. Some have since relaxed restrictions, though 17 states—plus Washington, D.C.—still have travel restrictions and guidelines. A number of states have imposed a mandatory quarantine upon arrival; in other destinations, negative COVID-19 tests must be presented to enter.
