From San Juan County Health & Community Services:

As spring break is coming soon for many of our local schools, we are getting more questions about families traveling or visiting.

San Juan County is following CDC travel advisory guidance: Travel During COVID-19 | CDC

As many older adults (65+) and pre-K – 12 staff have been vaccinated below is a copy of a section from the FAQ on the CDC page.

If I have been vaccinated, do I still need to test and self-quarantine before and after travel?

Yes. To reduce the risk of further spread of variant strains in the United States, people who have been vaccinated should still follow CDC’s travel recommendations and requirements before, during, and after travel. This includes all travel-related testing and quarantine recommendations and requirements, such as pre-travel and post-travel testing recommendations, the pre-departure testing requirement for international air passengers to the United States, and the recommended stay-at-home (self-quarantine) period after travel.

Fully vaccinated travelers should also follow all state, territorial, tribal, and local travel recommendations and requirements.

All international air passengers (aged 2 years or older) traveling to the U.S., regardless of vaccination or antibody status, are required to show a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19. Those departing from or traveling within the United States are also recommended to get tested before traveling.

All travelers, regardless of vaccination status, should get tested 3–5 days after travel and stay home and self-quarantine for 7 days after travel, even if their test is negative. Travelers who don’t get tested should stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel. Travelers who test positive or develop symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate and follow public health recommendations.
