Public Health: CDPH Travel Guide for Fully Vaccinated People
Humboldt County Public Health will follow guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), which updated its travel advisory Friday to address fully vaccinated people, while continuing to advise non-fully vaccinated people to delay travel.
According to CDPH fully vaccinated travelers:
- are less likely to get and spread COVID-19 and can travel safely within the United States and California
- should follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel guidance and are not required to test or quarantine before or after travel in the United States unless they have symptoms of COVID-19 disease.
CDPH has dropped its previous recommendation not to travel more than 120 miles from home. Instead, it has offered new recommendations for non-essential travel for unvaccinated Californians leaving the state, which include pre- and post-travel testing and quarantine upon return.
