Considerations when traveling
Many people are beginning to travel again now that COVID-19 restrictions are easing up.
If you have to travel, take these steps to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 during your trip:
• Wash your hands often
• Avoid close contact with others
• Wear a mask or face covering when you're in public places
• Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze
If you are coming back to Saratoga County after traveling outside of the region, we strongly advise a 14-day self-quarantine. It is extremely important that you monitor yourself for symptoms every day and contact your primary care doctor and local health department if symptoms appear.
If you are planning to travel to another state, we recommend that you review the CDC’s website with important travel information found here. You will also want to check with the state you are visiting to see if they have guidelines or recommendations for travelers.
The CDC also continues to provide information for international travel found here.
The Saratoga County Public Health Department has linked Travel information — both within the US and international travel — on its COVID-19 website.
