COVID-19 Traveler Information

Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) maintains a list of locations and isolation/quarantine guidelines on their website. Those who have traveled to the specified locations need to quarantine upon arrival in Kansas. The length of quarantine varies depending on whether you have been tested for COVID-19. This applies to both Kansas residents and those visiting Kansas.

In the past 14 days, if you have you have recently returned from a county, state or country with a CDC travel advisory or with known widespread community transmission (https://www.coronavirus.kdheks.gov/175/Travel-Exposure-Related-Isolation-Quaran), you may be at higher risk for COVID-19.

**On August 13, 2021, KDHE updated their travel quarantine guidance to include in-state mass gatherings of 500 or more. KDHE requires anyone who attends a mass gathering of 500 or more people where individuals do not socially distance and wear a mask to quarantine after the last day of the event. This includes both in-state and out-of-state gatherings. A mass gathering is any event or activity where 500 or more people are in the same space at the same time. Mass gatherings include events, parades, fairs, festivals, or other activities held in auditoriums, stadiums, arenas, large conference rooms, meeting halls, theaters or any other confined indoor or outdoor spaces, including school-sponsored activities.**
