Public Health Seeks Traveler Info
As COVID-19 infections increase across the globe and within our own state, travel is increasing the risk of exposure for individuals in our community.
High-risk travel is no longer limited to international destinations. Any travel to areas with community level transmission presents opportunities for exposure to COVID-19. All travelers to these areas, whether international or domestic, should be self-quarantining, which means staying at home except for accessing needed health care, for 14 days after return.
If you have traveled and become ill with fever, cough or shortness of breath or other symptoms of concern while quarantining at home, you should contact your health care provider for guidance.
Three recent flights may represent a possible exposure for COVID-19 infection, either because an individual on board has become a confirmed case or because a close contact whose test is pending was on board.
