United Airlines Now Has an Interactive Map to Keep Track of COVID-19 Restrictions While You Travel
If you’re thinking of traveling for business, leisure, or to see family over the holiday season, you’ll quickly discover that different cities and states have different guidelines for entry to help suppress the spread of COVID-19. Some may mandate quarantines for travelers, while others require a negative test result or completed health forms.
Fortunately, there’s a way to navigate this slightly dystopian travel environment. United Airlines has released an interactive map of the country that allows visitors to see what each state and region requires for guests—or if it’s even open at all.
The map, which is provided by Smartvel, also allows users to drill down and see if their destination has restaurants and other non-essential businesses open as well as any mask policies.
New York, for example, is currently requiring many visitors to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival depending on the community spread in their point of departure. Oregon has no such restrictions but face coverings are required.
The map is updated regularly and can also be found on United’s mobile app.
