Phil wrote, “If we live in Connecticut and travel to New York for a few days will we have to complete the online travel form now being implemented for not only airports but travel by car?”
Connecticut’s travel restrictions apply to states that are considered hot spots for COVID-19. As of now, New York is not included on that list, so you would not need to fill out an online travel form to visit New York for a few days. You can keep an eye on the State’s travel website before your trip for more information: https://portal.ct.gov/Coronavirus/Covid-19-Knowledge-Base/Travel-In-or-Out-of-CT
Michelle wrote, “Asking about anyone in CT traveling to Virginia Beach. When they come back do they have to quarantine for 14 days?”
Just yesterday, Virginia was added to the states listed on Connecticut’s travel restrictions. That means a person would have to quarantine for 14 days upon return to Connecticut or have a negative COVID test 72 hours prior to arrival in Connecticut. Don’t forget, you would also have to fill out a travel form at ct.gov/travelform. The State is monitoring COVID positivity rates in states and is updating Connecticut’s policy.
