Missouri COVID Guidance - High risk travel

  • black and white air plane

    Currently, Missouri does not have domestic travel restrictions; however, Missouri does have restrictions on international high-risk travel activities.


    High-risk activities are defined as:

    • Travel from a country or U.S. territory with a Level 2, Level 3, or Level 4 Travel Health Notice.
      • *Just about every country is a level 4 *
    • Going to a large social gathering like a wedding, funeral, or party.
    • Attending a mass gathering like a sporting event, concert, or parade.
    • Being in crowds like in restaurants, bars, fitness centers, or movie theaters.
    • Taking public transportation like trains or buses or being in transportation hubs like airports.
    • Traveling on a cruise ship or river boat


    If you participate in higher-risk activities during your international travel, take the actions listed below AND do the following after travel:

    • Get tested 3-5 days after travel AND stay home for 7 days after travel.
      • PCR test is required.
      • Testing before and after travel can reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Testing does not eliminate all risk, but when paired with a period of staying at home and precautions like wearing masks and social distancing, it can make travel safer by reducing spread on planes, in airports, and at travelers’ destinations.
      • Even if you test negative, stay home for the full 7 days.
      • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
    • If you don’t get tested, it’s safest to stay home for 10 days after travel.
    • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.
