Road trip? Quarantines mess with Americans' travel plans
Jul 31, 2020 1 min, 0 secs

The web of state and local quarantines is growing more tangled by the day: New York, New Jersey and Connecticut have ordered visitors from a whopping 34 states to quarantine for 14 days.

People are pretty much left on their own to figure out,” said Kathy Kutrubes, owner of a travel agency in Boston.

The restrictions — and maybe the confusion, too — are contributing to a sharp drop in travel, dealing a blow to a key industry.

Travel Association.

Normally nearly a third of domestic travel happens in the summer.

visitors and restrictions on crossing borders have also led many travel-related businesses to wonder if they will survive.

When it comes to travel restrictions in the U.S., the situation varies widely.

Many states have no restrictions whatsoever for domestic travel.

For example, Maine requires Massachusetts visitors to either quarantine or take a test, but Mainers may travel freely in Massachusetts.

But people who cross the state line for work are exempted.

Travel Association believes that with proper precautions — masks, hand-washing, and proper sanitation — people can travel safely.

More than a third of jobs lost during the pandemic are in the travel and tourism industry, said Tori Emerson Barnes, spokeswoman for the association.
