I really want to take a week off in October and travel to New England. Do you think the mandatory quarantine will still be in effect then for those states? I’m coming from a state that is currently high-risk. What are other places within the US that are worth visiting in October, if that trip falls through?

I’m in Massachusetts and our state/local governments are freaking out at the slight increases we are having. I don’t see the mandatory quarantine changing any time soon. And we aren’t supposed to go to Maine without a negative test or 2 week quarantine!

It will likely still be in effect, I wouldn’t plan on taking a trip until at least Spring 2021 if you don’t want to self quarantine upon arrival.

Here’s an idea- stay home! Stop being selfish.

I don’t disagree with P1 - I’m 100% being selfish. But I live alone, I have no family in the US and did not visit them this year, because I’m afraid I won’t be allowed back in the country with everything going on. I wanted to do a trip somewhere where I can do a lot of outdoor activities and limit my time indoors, which is why I thought NE would be a good place to visit during this time. I should’ve specified I’m strictly following social distancing guidelines, wear a mask everywhere and washing my hands for 20 seconds to show I’m less selfish than this post suggests.

Unfortunately no way at all to tell. My guess is within a month most of the hot states will cool off. October has potential to be the worst time though w second wave, flu season, and schools going on.
Could you do your trip in September?

My main motivation to go in October was the peak foliage at that time. Have wanted to do it for a while, but seems like I’ll have to wait another year

Also in MA and Salem has cancelled Haunted Happenings for the first time in years. Halloween in Salem in HUGE, so if this is any indicator... yes, we’re still being very cautious over here.

No one knows, but I’d be surprised if they weren’t still in place. I’d take a solid month or two of quarantine (at minimum) for the super red states to reduce their transmission rates to the degree required...can you go somewhere driving distance where you are? Or do the quarantine up here and buy groceries on the way/order food delivery/etc? The foliage is beautiful enough that you could totally go somewhere secluded, drive around to see it, and make things work!

They're only looser if you are coming from a state that is below the set threshold and driving. If you're flying and/or coming from a state above the threshold there are quarantine requirements (most of my family lives in VT and I've traveled up a few times this summer).

smart

Hawaii is pretty fabulous year round. Hopefully by October you’ll be able to show up with a negative COVID test within the last 72 hours and no longer have to quarantine.

If you drive rather than fly you should be fine
