In case you have not heard, we're supporting National Plan for Vacation Day (NPVD), the annual day for Americans to plan their vacation for the entire year at the start of the year, on January 26. 

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reduced quarantine guidelines from 14 to 10 days (or even less if you test negative for COVID-19) and now recommends Americans Traveling Internationally Should Get a COVID-19 Test at Three Different Times. They urge American travelers to follow the following guidelines for testing before an international flight:

  • Get tested 1-3 days before your flight.
  • Get tested 3-5 days after travel AND stay home for 7 days after travel.
  • Even if you test negative, stay home for the full 7 days.
  • If you don’t get tested, it’s safest to stay home for 10 days after travel.
  • Always follow state and local recommendations or requirements related to travel.
  • Delay your travel if you are waiting for test results.

CDC also Expands Negative COVID-19 Test Requirement to All Air Passengers Entering the United States effective January 26. We continue to work with best practices and guidance from health leaders so we can provide you the necessary service in your travel journey.

With this in mind, we've carefully curated important travel resources below to help you feel confident when traveling and how to do your part to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
