Consistent with CDC's recommendations, NJDOH has updated guidance for fully vaccinated persons as it relates to travel. Fully vaccinated persons should get tested 3-5 days after returning to the United States from international travel, but no quarantine following travel or test before travel (unless required by the destination) is needed. For domestic travel within the U.S., no quarantine or test before or after travel is needed for fully vaccinated travelers.
Travel recommendations for persons recently recovered from COVID-19 have also been updated. Similar to fully vaccinated travelers, persons who clinically recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months do not need to quarantine after travel. In addition, they do not need to be tested before or after travel, domestic or international.
All travelers should continue to wear a mask while traveling, stay 6 feet from others and avoid crowds, wash hands often or use hand sanitizer, self-monitor for symptoms during and after travel, and self-isolate should symptoms develop.
