Recommendations for Travelers

If you recently traveled to a country under an advisory or have had close contact with someone who has recently traveled to one of those countries, and have a fever and cough or shortness of breath, you should:

  • Seek medical care right away. Before you go to a doctor's office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • After you have been seen by a medical provider, stay home and avoid contact with others until you are well.
  • Avoid travel on any public transportation (such as bus, subway, train, or airplane) until the illness resolves.
  • Wear a mask if you need to leave your home when sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
