The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a travel advisory for the United States.
The CDC has issued a travel advisory to New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. However, this doesn’t apply to essential workers, such as public health professionals, financial services, and food supply.
If your destination is a hot zone for COVID-19, consider not going. Your chances of getting infected and spreading is more likely if you travel. Also consider the amount of contact you will have. Your risk of exposure will increase in crowded settings, particularly in closed settings such as conferences or buses and trains.
Those considered high risk (older adults and people who have serious chronic medical conditions) should refrain from travel. Also consider being in quarantine for 14-days after travel.
