For US travelers...

I heard President say "quarantine" upon returning to the US in his speech today. This is the first time I have heard this in addition to the pre-flight Covid test requirement.

Here is the text of the Executive Order: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2021/01/21/executive-order-promoting-covid-19-safety-in-domestic-and-international-tr...

See Section 5. It indicates complying with CDC Guidelines.

The CDC Guidelines are: "Get tested 3-5 days after travel AND stay home for 7 days after travel. 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."

This will clearly impact short term travelers!

I imagine there will be clarification of this in the upcoming days.
