Guidance for Travelers

Travelers entering Pennsylvania from other countries and states, as well as Pennsylvanians who are returning home from other countries or states, must have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth, or quarantine for 10 days upon entry into Pennsylvania. If a traveler chooses to get tested upon entering the Commonwealth, or is waiting for test results, the traveler must quarantine for 10 days, or until receipt of a negative test result, whichever comes first.

The Pennsylvania Tourism Office wants every traveler to be able to pursue their happiness in the best, and safest, way possible. We urge everyone to continue to observe social distancing and other good health habits while traveling. For more healthy travel guidance and traveling to and from Pennsylvania, go to Pennsylvania Department of Health - Travelers.

For more travel advisories and information specific to a region, visitors can also contact Pennsylvania’s Welcome Centers.

Guidance for Outdoor Recreation

Golf courses, boating, horseback riding, tennis, archery or shooting, outdoor miniature golf, mountain biking, go carts, rock climbing, motorsports venues, disc golf, paintball, marinas, guided fishing trips, privately-owned campgrounds and other similar facilities that conduct operations outdoors have reopened statewide, while actively prioritizing public health and safety. All DCNR (PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources) lands including trails, lakes, rivers, streams, forests, roads, and parking areas are also accessible statewide for recreation; however, the availability of facilities such as bathrooms, offices, and campgrounds varies.

State park and forest visitors are urged to do their part to make the experience healthy and enjoyable for themselves and others by following COVID-19 mitigation guidelines, including practicing social distancing, avoiding crowds, and wearing a mask when they encounter other people. As of Nov. 20, all out-of-state visitors are required to have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering Pennsylvania or quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in PA.
