The Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation (CHCC) and the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force have announced new quarantine protocols.

Effective May 17, 2021, fully vaccinated travelers coming in from Level 1 jurisdictions on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Travel Health Notice list do not have to quarantine in any form, after providing verifiable vaccination documentation from their respective health department or health provider and after their lodging or household passes assessment.

If their household assessment fails, these travelers will be given the option to self-monitor at home. Travelers from Level 1 jurisdictions also do not have to test upon arrival but will be tested on the fifth day after arrival.

Fully vaccinated travelers from jurisdictions other than Level 1 can apply to quarantine at their lodging or home after being verified for completing their COVID-19 vaccination and passing a lodging or household assessment. If their household assessment fails, these travelers will be required to quarantine at a government quarantine facility. These individuals will be tested on arrival and the fifth day after arrival.
