The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a recommendation Saturday night for no unnecessary travel for the next 14 days because of Covid-19 for New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, following through on a request by President Trump for “a strong travel advisory.”
The CDC noted that the governors of each state “will have full discretion to implement this Domestic Travel Advisory.”
The advisory suggested that travelers ask themselves several questions before they set out. It cautioned, “If Covid-19 is spreading at your destination, but not where you live, you may be more likely to get infected if you travel there than if you stay home.”
The CDC noted that employees with critical jobs, including those in trucking, public health, financial services and food supply, are excluded from the Domestic Travel Advisory.
