International Flights to U.S. Requirements:
All air passengers to the U.S. must obtain a viral test within 3 days before flying to the U.S and provide written lab results to the airline to board the flight. Airlines must deny boarding, otherwise.
Quarantine Recommendations (based on CDC Guidance):
- Unvaccinated individuals entering the U.S. should self-quarantine for 7 days and obtain a viral test, or self-quarantine for 10 days with no test. Get a free test or report any symptoms to UWG Health Services by calling 678-839-6452 for an appointment.
- Fully vaccinated individuals entering the U.S. don't need to self-quarantine but should obtain a viral test within 3-5 days after arrival. Free testing is available by appointment at UWG Health Services. Call 678-839-6452.
- Previously COVID-19 infected individuals who can document infection within 90 days prior to U.S. entry who are also 2 weeks post-infection, do not need to self-quarantine or a viral test.
- How to Self-Quarantine: Stay in room as much as possible except for fresh air or exercise. Wear a mask outside your room at all times, maintain social distance, and don't share personal items or utensils. Food will be delivered if you live on campus.
