2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-2019)
Weekly Updated #40 – August 25, 2020
When Should I Delay My Travel?
According to the CDC, “people who are sick, have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 pose a risk to others during travel”.
Don’t travel if you or any of your companions
• Are sick.
• Have suspected or diagnosed COVID-19 (even if you don’t have symptoms).
• Have been around someone with suspected or diagnosed COVID-19 in the past 14 days (even if they don’t have symptoms).
“The COVID-19 pandemic may be stressful for people. Traveling with family or friends can be a stress reliever, but it also increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID19. You don’t want to miss out on a planned trip, but there are situations when cancelling or postponing travel makes sense for you and those you care about. Delaying your trip when you could spread COVID-19 also protects other travelers, people who work in travel settings, and those at your destination.” Learn more on the CDC website.

Travel Advisory Reminder
As we head into the end of summer and approach Labor Day, many New Jersey residents may be traveling to get in a last minute vacation out of state. All incoming travelers from applicable states should quarantine for 14 days after leaving.
Remember, a negative test a few days into quarantine does not mean that you can’t test positive later on during the quarantine. Finish the 14 day quarantine to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Visit the CDC website for updated guidance on international travel.
