Guidance on travel and travel restrictions varies across the United States as the country faces a new surge in Kovid-19 cases before the Thanksgiving trip.
The patchwork of sanctions between regions exposes states’ ability to differentiate when dealing with the coronovirus epidemic.
While all northeastern and most Mid-Atlantic states have implemented statewide travel restrictions, more than half of the states, including the two largest, Texas and Florida, have no such restrictions.
California, Oregon and Washington introduced tougher travel restrictions in November, requiring all out-of-state visitors and returning residents to self-quarantine for two weeks upon arrival.
States hit the hardest when the epidemic began last spring in the United States, such as New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut also have some of the most stringent travel restrictions.
As of 20 November, any traveler from more than 40 states and territories must be self-quarantined for 14 days, currently on the tri-state advisory list. States will appear on the advisory list if they have more than 10 new daily positive test rates per 100,000 residents, or are states with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate higher than the seven-day rolling average.
Some local authorities have banned travel to the most populous cities, rather than opposing state restrictions.
