Travel

Updated April 20, 2022

Spokane Regional Health District and the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) ask Washington residents to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) COVID-19 travel guidance.

Do not travel if you have been exposed to COVID-19, if you are sick, or if you test positive for COVID-19.

Travel Information

Domestic Travel

It is best to delay all travel until you are fully vaccinated.* If you are not up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, follow CDC recommendations for travelers who are not up to date. Make sure to research COVID-19 guidelines and requirements for your destination. See CDC guidance on domestic travel.

International Travel

International travel poses added risks even for those who are fully vaccinated; international travelers are at increased risk for getting and potentially spreading COVID-19.

  • CDC requires all air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens, have a negative COVID-19 test result no more than one day before travel, regardless of vaccination status. Learn more
  • All non-U.S. citizens and non-U.S. immigrants must be fully vaccinated to travel to the United States by plane. Learn more about this requirement, including limited exemptions.

See CDC guidance on international travel.


Testing

Face Coverings

Currently, there are no federal requirements to wear masks on public transportation. Check with individual air carriers and other local public transportation providers/terminals/stations for mask requirements. CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time. See Masks and Cloth Face Coverings for more information about masking requirements.

*People are considered fully vaccinated two (2) weeks after second dose in a 2-dose series, like Pfizer or Moderna, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson.
