If you are traveling to an area currently affected by COVID-19 and feel sick from a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, you should do so.:

  • Stay at home and avoid contact with other people for up to 72 hours after the fever has disappeared and the symptoms of acute infection are cured. Most people can recover at home without medical treatment.
  • If you need to seek medical attention immediately, call first before you go to the doctor’s office or emergency room and tell them about your last trip and your symptoms.
  • Avoid traveling when sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve (not your hand) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

All individuals returning from areas with substantial community distribution must follow Arizona Guide to Returning Travelers, traveling directly to a place of isolation or quarantine itself, and only leaving that location for important activities.
