I've been searching for this but haven't found a straight answer.

I have both vaccines, and I'll be traveling to Newark Liberty International Airport next month.

Will EWR airport (or anyone else within the airport, airline, etc..) require a negative COVID test to leave the airport? Is proof of vaccination good enough?

New Jersey doesn't have any special criteria outside of recommendations for domestic travelers

Unvaccinated individuals who do travel should get tested 1-3 days before their trip and 3-5 days after travel. Even if they test negative, the CDC recommends unvaccinated individuals stay home and self-quarantine for 7 days after domestic travel, and for 10 days if they are unable to test.

Fully vaccinated individuals and those who have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months do not need to get tested or self-quarantine after travel. However, the CDC recommends fully vaccinated individuals self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms, and isolate and get tested if they develop symptoms.

But, some states may have different rules in place

  • @fdkgfosfskjdlsjdlkfsfI haven't heard of them, but a state could have departure guidelines or rules even for domestic flights. You should find out, or reveal the state of your departure. Dec 27, 2021 at 16:20

    Which states require a Covid test for domestic flights? Hawaii requires it if you’re unvaccinated but that’s it. I’d remove the last paragraph.

    @JonathanReez Hawaii is the only one I know of. So far. Dec 27, 2021 at 19:14
