Travel increases the risk of spreading COVID-19 to others. Even if you have been vaccinated, continue to follow COVID-19 prevention strategies to protect others before, during and after traveling. Before you leave, check the CDC Travel Planner for state, local, tribal and territorial government restrictions, and be aware of CDC required testing or quarantine for international travel.

If I am vaccinated, do I need to quarantine when I return to Kansas? 

Kansans who have been vaccinated for COVID-19 are not required to quarantine after travelling if they meet all of the following criteria:

  • Are fully vaccinated (i.e., ≥2 weeks following receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series, or ≥2 weeks following receipt of one dose of a single-dose vaccine)
  • Are within 6 months following receipt of the last dose in the series
  • Have remained asymptomatic since the travel

Persons who do not meet all of the criteria should continue to follow current quarantine guidance for travel.
