An All-In One Resource for Travel Advisories and Quarantines in the New England States

You’ll want to bookmark this.

Staying on top of COVID19 travel restrictions by state can be confusing and a hassle. With fall here and many of us visiting the region to peep fall foliage, I figured I would put together a quick all-in-one resources that makes keeping track of all the COVID19 travel restrictions and quarantine requirements by state and their guidelines that much easier.

Below are the some general information as well as direct links to the resources each state has set up for coronavirus travel guidelines. Each state has their own travel advisory, which may or may not require you to quarantine for 14-days upon arrival. This way, this page will always stay up to date, given that the linked information is updated by the states themselves.

As well, at the end of this post, I have put together some useful items to help you and others stay safe during your COVID19 trips. I may make a small commission when you use these links and purchase a product.

Vermont has stringent travel restrictions for anyone coming out-of-state, such as a 14-day quarantine, all of which you can find here.

Restrictions are made according to the COVID19 test positivity rate by county, rather than state. You can find the map of restricted counties by clicking here.

The page for COVID19 travel is handy for both out-of-state visitors and and resources for in-state residents who are planning to travel, such as traveller’s tests, and information on returning from their travels.

Massachusetts has set up restrictions for residents returning from high-risk states and travelers coming from high-risk states.

Those who do not do this will have to quarantine for 14 days, produce a neagtive COVID19 test result that has been administered within 72 hours of your arrival in Massachusetts, or quarantine until you take a test in-state and receive your result.

As well, they will need to complete the Massachusetts Travel form before arriving.

COVID19 Travel Essentials

Beatbasic Black Cotton Face Masks

A pair of black reusable cotton face masks from beatbasic. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, I have worn these masks since June nearly everyday and they are soft, comfortable, and almost never fall off my face due to their construction. They are some of the best reviewed face masks available on Amazon. I like to stash them next to my keys, in my car, and in  my backpack to reduce the chances of forgetting a mask when I go out.

Germ-x Original Hand Sanitizer, 3.0 Fluid Ounce Bottles

In my experience, Germ-x sanitizer gel is one of the nicer to live with sanitizers and more a reliable brand. I have used this since before the pandemic. It does not have the “bad night out” smell of cheap alcohol that many new hand sanitizer brands can suffer from. I am posting a link to purchase in the form of several small bottles, since like face masks, it is a good idea to stash some away in bags, coat pockets, and glove compartments.
