YOU'RE FREE TO MOVE ABOUT THE COUNTRY: CCHCS travel restrictions updated effective May 22, 2020
As you explore possible summer destinations for a family vacation or escape to recharge during this time, here are the latest updates that you should be aware of before making those decisions.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott lifted interstate travel restrictions. This means that there will be no required 14-day quarantine upon return from U.S. destinations.
However, the State Department has issued a Level 4 advisory for international travel, and the CDC still recommends a 14-day quarantine for all international travel. Therefore, ANY Cook Children's employee traveling outside of the U.S. would be required to quarantine for 14 days upon return from international travel.
As always, Cook Children's will continue to observe all state and federal guidelines for travel.
