    Information about Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) for travelers

    Someone's risk for COVID-19 is closely tied to their recent travel history, and the travel histories of their immediate contacts — specifically, travel to areas with community transmission of COVID-19 or close contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19. Relevant travel history is being updated on the CDC website: Coronavirus Disease 2019 Information for Travel

    Anyone who has recently traveled to any countries of high-level transmission (China, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Japan as of March 2nd, 2020) should contact the Massachusetts State Epidemiology (MSE) line at (617) 983-6800.

    Anyone having symptoms of respiratory illness and/or fever should:

    Stay home when sick and contact their health care provider, and to remember to:
    • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve.
    • Wash hands with soap and water.
    • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects (for example, TV remotes and computers).
