Know the Travel Guidelines for Your Destination Before You Go
*Rules for COVID-19 testing and quarantining can vary greatly among U.S. states. Some destinations may not accept test results from self-collected samples; please check with your destination to confirm. Visit the CDC’s Travel Planner to be routed to the relevant health department in order to understand what’s required before traveling to that destination.

The agency’s website notes that even fully vaccinated people are at risk of getting and spreading new COVID-19 variants when traveling.
