From San Juan County Health & Community Services

This week, WA DOH updated the Child Care, Youth Development and Day Camps Guidance document while many families and staff are on spring break.

They have inserted the CDC guidelines for travel on page 16, this recommendation differs slightly from the most recent travel chart you have been referencing.

We ask that you use your best judgement as staff and families return to work and community life.

Returning to a Program after Travel

Travelers who are not fully vaccinated should get tested with a molecular/PCR or antigen test 3- 5 days after travel and stay home and self-quarantine for a full seven days after travel, even if their test is negative. If the traveler is positive, they should isolate and follow DOH guidance on what to do if you have confirmed or suspected COVID-19. If the traveler doesn’t get tested, they should stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.

Travelers who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can travel within the United States and do not need COVID-19 testing or post-travel self-quarantine as long as they continue to take precautions while traveling: wear a mask, avoid crowds, and wash hands frequently.

All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board a flight to the United States. This is required regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.
