Travel Restrictions

There are currently no travel restrictions or mandatory quarantine requirements for travelers entering Texas. Check here for COVID-19 travel updates from the Texas Department of Public Safety. As a reminder, per the CDC, "Travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19."

If you plan to travel,

  • Wear a mask to keep your nose and mouth covered when in public settings.

  • Avoid close contact by staying at least 6 feet apart (about 2 arms' length) from anyone who is not from your household.

  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).

  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Consider avoiding large social gathering like a wedding, funeral, or party.

  • Consider avoiding mass gathering like a sporting event, concert, or parade.

  • Consider avoiding crowds - for example, in restaurants, bars, airports, bus and train stations, movie theaters, and amusement parks.


The CDC advises that after travel, all travelers should take these actions to protect others from getting sick:

  • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms' length) from anyone who is not from your household. It's important to do this everywhere - both indoors and outdoors.

  • Wear a mask to keep your nose and mouth when you are outside of your home.

  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer.

  • Watch your health: Look for symptoms of COVID-19 and take your temperature if you feel sick.

  • See CDC's After Travel webpage to learn if you should take additional precautions. Follow state, territorial, tribal, and local recommendations or requirements.
