U.S. Travel Guidelines and Requirements 

The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires all air passengers entering the United States (including U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents) to present a negative COVID-19 test, taken within three calendar days of departure or proof of recovery from the virus within the last 90 days. Airlines must confirm the negative test result or proof of recovery for all passengers two years of age and over prior to boarding. Airlines must deny boarding of passengers who do not provide documentation of a negative test or recovery. 

Please see the CDC’s FAQ for answers to questions about the requirement for proof of negative COVID-19 test or recovery from COVID-19 for all air passengers arriving in the United States. 

The CDC recommends that you do not travel internationally until you are fully vaccinated. International travel poses additional risks, and even fully vaccinated travelers might be at increased risk for getting and possibly spreading some COVID-19 variants. Delay travel and stay home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. If you do travel, follow all CDC recommendations before, during, and after travel.

Masks: Orange County recommends following CDC guidelines for masks. Businesses throughout the region continue to request masks on property for non-vaccinated individuals, particularly in indoor settings, including our famous theme parks, as well as the airport, convention center, major shopping and retail stores, and most of our privately owned restaurants, hotels and attractions.

Physical Distance: Throughout Orange County, physical distance has been reduced from 6 to 3 feet in all settings, including the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). Individual businesses may continue to uphold the 6 feet at their discretion.

Capacity: While there are currently no government mandated capacity restrictions, except to maintain the 3-feet distance, each individual property is handling as they deem most safe. For example, at OCCC, sessions and events held in OCCC ballrooms and meeting rooms will continue to be designed based on a 50% capacity.

Transportation: All modes of transportation are open in Orange County and throughout the State of Florida, including air travel at Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), rental cars, taxis, ride-share services, buses and commuter rail. In Orange County, visitors and locals alike can take advantage of COVID-19 testing at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando International Airport, many walk-in medical centers and other locations throughout the destination.

How things may change in the future: As more Orange County residents become vaccinated, our local government has laid out a phased approach to reducing restrictions. The goal that when 70 percent of the population 16 or older has received their first dose of the vaccine and/or Orange County’s 14-day rolling positivity rate is 5% or below, all mandates are lifted. Individual businesses may continue to uphold restrictions at their discretion.

We look forward to seeing you!
