• Limit your interactions with others as much as possible in the two weeks before you leave. The less interactions you have, the less likely you are to contract COVID-19 and bring it home with you.
• Be cautious during travel. No matter how you choose to travel, you can take actions to help reduce your chances of contracting COVID-19. View these travel tips for help getting to your destination safely.
• Research local restrictions for your destination. Some state, local and territorial governments have requirements, such as requiring masks or requiring those who have traveled to quarantine for up to 14 days. View state and territorial listings and tribal public health resources.
• If you’ll be around an individual from a high-risk population when you arrive at your destination, be sure to wear a face covering and keep 6-feet apart so you don’t unknowingly pass along the virus.
If you’re quarantining due to exposure to COVID-19 or are isolating due to a positive COVID-19 test, you should postpone travel until the end of your quarantine or isolation. If you find it absolutely necessary to travel during this time, you should contact Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department at 402-441-8053 to discuss additional precautions.“
