With the growing wave of coronavirus cases, in some parts of the North American country the requirements have been tightened in recent weeks to be able to travel without quarantine or test. Although, it is expected that for Christmas there will be some type of release, at the moment, we review to which cities or states in the United States you can travel with or without restrictions.
The number of states with restrictions increased from 18 to 22 from November to December, including California, Minnesota, Oregon and the state of Washington. But, on the contrary, 28 states still have no travel restrictions, even with some of the highest infection rates in the country (for example, North Dakota).
And as infection rates increased in the US, so did the number of states that were placed on “high risk” lists; in many cases, now only visitors to Hawaii can get to any state unhindered.
However, there is no uniformity between the current travel restrictions: some quarantines are voluntary, others mandatory, and in others a negative COVID-19 test is required.
And although some states do not have restrictions, such as Florida, which attracts a large number of tourists from all over the world, it is necessary to use face masks in public places, limit the capacities in closed places as well as the number of people in public and social gatherings.
The following states (in alphabetical order) currently have no statewide travel restrictions: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska , Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
And these 22 states (in alphabetical order) have travel restrictions: Alaska, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington State, and Wisconsin. (Washington DC also has travel restrictions.)
Remember that these data may change from one moment to another and it is best to check with the official websites of each state and / or city.
