Current recommendations from the state Department of Health require travelers older than 11 to produce a negative COVID test or quarantine for 10 days upon returning from out-of-state travel. This does not apply to those who return from traveling outside the state within 24 hours. Be sure to check for COVID-19 travelers information updates before you travel.
