Travel from Puerto Rico

Active Member

Hello there!

Just want to confirm that travelers that are traveling FROM Puerto Rico back to any state after 1/26 will not need a negative Covid test as it is a US territory?


Any info from anyone would be very helpful!

It is updated whenever the airline gets new information.

Puerto Rico is excluded from the new CDC guideline requiring a covid test before coming back to the US since it is considered part of the US.  The CDC does however state, "Travelers should avoid all travel to Puerto Rico."
