The City of Chicago's Emergency Travel Order transitioned to an Advisory only effective June 29, 2021. As of October 13, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) included 47 states (every state but Illinois, California and Connecticut) and three territories (every territory but Puerto Rico) on the travel advisory, who all surpassed the threshold of 15 cases per day, per 100,000 residents. Chicago residents or visitors coming from these states are advised (not required) to do the following:
Before travel, unvaccinated individuals traveling to a high-risk ("orange") state should:
Get tested 1-3 days prior to departure.
After travel, unvaccinated individuals returning from a high-risk ("orange") state should:
Get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days.
Even if you test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.
If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.
This advisory will be updated on a weekly basis moving forward.
Travelers must still abide by all masking requirements on planes, buses, and trains, as well as in transportation hubs such as airports and stations. You can learn more about the Emergency Travel Order on the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 website: https://bit.ly/chicagotravelorder
