RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TRAVELERS

  • Returning international travelers are no longer required  to self-quarantine and self-monitor for 14 days upon return / arrival.  However, several countries are seeing increased cases of COVID-19 and we continue to recommend that travelers practice strict social distancing and self-monitor for symptoms.  If symptoms develop, individuals should isolate immediately.
  • Out-of-state travelers and others traveling within Nebraska (e.g., commuters) should practice strict social distancing and self-monitor for symptoms consistent with COVID-19.  Individuals that develop symptoms should immediately self-isolate.
  • Find more information from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

Definitions

  • Self-quarantine: Persons with known or potential exposure to a person with COVID-19 infection, or international travel, should remove themselves from situations where others could be exposed/infected should they develop infection, and self-monitor to identify if COVID-19 infection develops.
  • Self-monitor: Monitor yourself for symptoms consistent with COVID-19 infection, including cough, shortness of breath, fever, sore throat, and fatigue. Persons with known exposure to COVID-19 infection are asked to check for symptoms including fever twice daily (e.g., 8 am and 8 pm). Persons with COVID-19 infection should document symptoms to enable accurate determination of duration of isolation.
  • Self-isolate: Persons who tests positive for COVID-19 or develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (including fever of 100.4 F. or above, or a sudden onset of a cough or sudden onset of shortness of breath) should eliminate contact with others.
  • Social distancing: Minimize interactions in crowded spaces by working from home, closing schools/switching to online classes, cancelling/postponing conferences and large meetings, and keeping individuals spaced at least 6 feet apart.
  • Close contact: an individual who has been within 6 feet (2 meters) of a person who tested positive or someone with the following symptoms including: fever of 100.4 F. or above or  sudden onset of a cough or sudden onset of shortness of breath, for at least 10 minutes.
