What you Need to Know About COVID


States with travel restrictions

If you are coming to Rhode Island from one of the states listed with a positivity rate of COVID-19 greater than 5%, you are required to self-quarantine for 14 days while in Rhode Island. As an exception, you may provide proof of a negative test for COVID-19 that was taken within 72 hours prior to arrival in Rhode Island. If you receive a test during your quarantine in Rhode Island and get a negative test result, you can stop quarantining. However, you still need to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days, wear a mask in public, and follow physical distancing guidelines. You also must quarantine while waiting for a negative test result.

List is here.

Testing Sites for Out-of-State Travelers who don't have COVID-19 Symptoms can be found here.
