Traveling to and from Nevada During COVID-19

There are several ways in which one can arrive to or depart from Nevada. A popular and efficient mode of travel is by plane, but this is not the only option. Often, people will drive their personal vehicle, rent a car, take a bus or travel by train.  

    Each car rental company has its own COVID-19 polices in place, many of which require each vehicle to be sanitized and fully cleaned after each rental period. Many car rental places have contactless check-in, or you can personally connect with a representative, should you choose. Contact the company from which you are renting a vehicle for their specific COVID-19 protocols and sanitization measures.

      Both Greyhound and Amtrack have stations throughout Nevada. Whether you are traveling Greyhound or Amtrack, one is required to wear a mask while on the premises or on board regardless of vaccination status. Greyhound requires passengers to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test taken no earlier than five days prior to planned travel. If more than 5 days pass from the start and end of your trip with Greyhound and from your initial negative COVID-19 test, you will have to produce another negative COVID-19 test.

        Amtrack passengers will have to complete a pre-trip COVID-19 check within 24 hours of departure. To complete this requirement, you will need your reservation number and relevant contact information. Amtrack passengers are required to wear a facemask while on Amtrack premises or on board regardless of their vaccination status.

          Unless you are an international traveler, you do not need to provide a negative COVID-19 test when traveling to or from Nevada. The CDC requires everyone traveling internationally to obtain a negative COVID-19 test 1 day prior to boarding an airplane to enter the United States. A negative COVID-19 test may be required for international travelers to return home or continue to their next non-U.S. destination. There have been several Presidential proclamations establishing restrictions on the entry of certain travelers into the United States. Details about destinations can be found at the CDC travel web page linked here. Research the requirements of your destination prior to travel and know the requirements associated with your international destination.
