I’m supposed to travel somewhere soon. Should I cancel my trip?

Traveling increases your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) cannot tell you whether or not you should cancel your trip; however, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that all people postpone or cancel non-essential travel and avoid prolonged exposure to large groups of people. Be aware that individuals who travel outside the United States or to certain states with the U.S., may be expected to quarantine pursuant to requirements above upon arrival in Kansas. Visit Shortened Quarantine Guidance.  Anyone who chooses to travel at this time may face travel delays or quarantines when trying to get back into the state and may not be able to return to their daily life immediately upon return.
