Travel Information

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.

Domestic Travel

It is best to delay all travel until you are up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines, including booster doses.* Make sure to research COVID-19 guidelines and requirements for your destination.

See CDC guidance on domestic travel.

International Travel

Before traveling abroad, make sure you are up to date* on your COVID-19 vaccinations. Check the COVID-19 situation and vaccination requirements for your destination before leaving. When you return to the United States, take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in case you were exposed while traveling.

  • 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.
  • As of June 12, 2022, the CDC no longer requires proof of a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 for travelers entering the United States. Learn more

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 their second dose in a 2-dose series, like Pfizer or Moderna, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson. People are considered up to date when they have received all doses in their primary series and all boosters recommended for them when eligible.
