The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has created a web portal called Travel Planner, that will serve as a centralized communication platform for COVID-19 travel restrictions and policies enacted by state, local, tribal and territorial governments. CDC needs help from local health departments in filling the web portal. The goal is to have one centralized location—the Travel Planner—that travelers can search to find COVID-19 information for the communities they’re passing through and for their destinations. This information will help travelers make informed decisions, protect themselves, and reduce transmission before, during, and after they travel.
As a health department, you will be able to use the Travel Planner to reach travelers and share your COVID-19 policies. Once you are registered with CDC’s Secure Access Management Services (SAMS) and the Travel Planner portal, inputting your health department’s information should take less than 15 minutes.
Visit the Virtual Communities post for additional information on how to add your jurisdiction’s information to the Travel Planner.
NACCHO hosted the COVID-19: CDC Travel Planner Rollout webinar on Tuesday, November 10 to provide a step-by step demonstration on how to enter your jurisdiction’s information into the Travel Planner platform. View the recording.
