Travel Well: Covid-19 Information

Enjoy our fun new video about wearing masks and staying safe! Visit the Mask-On-SFO page to learn more about the making of this video.

As of December 17, 2020, health orders from the State of California and San Francisco Bay Area Counties recommend staying home as the safest method to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and have issued a travel advisory urging against non-essential travel.
The California Public Health Travel Advisory instructs persons arriving in California from other states or countries, including returning California residents, to practice self-quarantine for 10 days after arrival. These persons should limit their interactions to their immediate household. This recommendation does not apply to individuals who cross state or country borders for essential travel.

The San Francisco Bay Area is now under the State of California’s Regional Stay Home Order. Additionally, San Francisco and Santa Clara counties have implemented mandatory quarantines for any person arriving to and staying in these counties, unless specifically exempted by the health orders. Visit for additional information.

Please follow CDC guidance and take reasonable precautions to avoid spreading the virus.

SFO is open. If your essential travel brings you to SFO, you’ll notice new protocols and health measures that have been put in place to keep you healthy and traveling well. Please note that everyone must bring and properly wear a mask or facial covering while at SFO to receive service from all providers and air carriers.
