State’s Travel Order to be replaced with Travel Advisory | News

BOSTON (WGGB/WSHM) — As the state moves into Step 1 of Phase 4 in the reopening process on Monday, changes will also be coming to the longstanding travel order.

The Baker-Polito Administration said that starting Monday, that Travel Order is being replaced with a Travel Advisory, which will advise all those entering Massachusetts after being out of the state for 24 hours or more – including returning residents – to quarantine for 10 days after arriving.

The advisory, however, does not apply to the following:

  • Anyone who is returning to Massachusetts after an absence of fewer than 24 hours.
  • Travelers who have a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72 hours prior to their arrival in Massachusetts.
  • Workers who enter Massachusetts to perform critical infrastructure functions (as specified by the Federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) while they are commuting to or from or while at work.
  • Travelers who are fully vaccinated (i.e. who have received two doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines OR who have received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 14 days or more ago) and who do not have symptoms

State officials continue to urge travelers to follow CDC requirements and guidelines for travel.
