Where to Stay in the States with the Fewest Coronavirus Cases

Where to Stay in the States with the Fewest Coronavirus Cases

.

As States Reopen Following Closures During COVID-19, some states have managed much lower rates of confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths, making them particularly attractive to skittish travelers seeking a low prevalence of the virus and strong state public health efforts.

Before booking travel, be sure to confirm the health and possible quarantine requirements. For example, Alaska will require travelers and returning Alaskan residents to either provide a negative COVID-19 test result from taken no greater than 72 hours prior to departing for Alaska, or be tested at the airport on arrival, or self-quarantine for 14 days. It's very possible that Hawaii will adopt similar measures.
