A State By State Guide To 2021 US Corona-Virus Regulations

The United States of America has been affected by the Corona-virus effects for well over a year now. Over 21 million Americans have been infected by the Corona-virus, with well over 274,000 confirmed cases this January 2021 alone.

There have been over 365,000 deaths, with more than4,000people succumbing to the effects of Corona-virus in January 2021 alone. So as the United States of America continues to battle with this pandemic, some things have changed, and new rules and regulations have been put in place by various areas to combat the further spread of the Corona-virus. Here is a list of the regions in the United Areas of America and their regulations regarding the Corona-virus pandemic.

Alabama

In the area of Alabama, there exist no strict journey constraints, but journeyers to Alabama have to be aware that they have a strict mask-on policy in public, which areas that people have to wear their masks at all times whenever they are in public places. This policy, however, will come into effect from January 22, 2021. Their food establishments are also open to the public, but many of them have expanded their outdoor seating setting to ensure adequate spacing between tables and customers.

Alaska

In Alaska, there exists a compulsory 14-day self-isolation phase for journeyers who are over the age of 10. But for people who are not currently living in Alaska and who are over the age of 10 and who wish not to go through the self-isolation phase, they will have to go through a corona-virus check, analysis, and evaluation, and the negative end-result will have to be uploaded to the Alaskan Journey portal. They would also have to turn in a journey declaration form and a plan for self-isolation while in the area of Alaska to the journey portal. Journeyers who are still awaiting check, analysis, and evaluation end-results would also have to upload proof that they underwent the Corona-virus check, analysis, and evaluation and must undergo self-isolation until the end-result of the check, analysis, and evaluation are available. Those who did not take a Corona-virus check, analysis, and evaluation before journeying into Alaska would be administered a Corona-virus check, analysis, and evaluation upon arrival at the airport at the cost of $250 to be paid by the journeyer, and they must also self-isolation until the end-result of the corona check, analysis and evaluation are available.

California

In the area of California, there exist no set strict regulations to be followed by incoming journeyers, but the Governor of the area (Gavin Newsom), on December 3, ordered a stay-at-home order which was regional in order to contain the spread of the Corona-virus. Hotels, motels, and other accommodation establishments also do not accept reservations from people who are not within the area of California, except the stay are for a minimum of two weeks (14 days and above), and the guests will have to observe self-isolation and self-isolation within their premises of living or accommodation. Places within California like San Francisco and Santa Clara County have a compulsory self-isolation and self-isolation phase for incoming journeyers. The mandated phase for self-isolation and self-isolation is a minimum of 10 days. Also, incoming journeyers who are aged 16 and above and who are journeying into Los Angeles will have to fill and turn in a form online that acknowledges that they understand the L’s journey requirements and regulations. A County and if they fail to fill and turn in that form before arrival in L.A, it attracts a fine of up to $500.

Colorado

Available on request a negative Corona-virus check, analysis, and evaluation, which has been gone through not more than within 72 hours of journey, or they would be mandated to go through a compulsory 14- day self-isolation phase.

Still, journeyers from other areas must face a compulsory self-isolation phase of 10 days. They must fill out and sign a Connecticut Journey and Health Form upon their arrival in Connecticut, or they would be forced to pay a fine of up to $500.

Hawaii

The beautiful island of Hawaii has a compulsory 10-day self-isolation rule for journeyers into the island. Still, to avoid that, you would have to turn in a negative corona-virus check, analysis, and evaluation end-result. The check, analysis, and evaluation,end-result, also have to be obtained from a well-established and trusted check, analysis, and evaluation partner before you begin your journey into Hawaii. Journeyers would also have to upload their negative check, analysis, and evaluation end-result to their safe Journeys Systems. If they wish to do so, they can also come with a hard copy and provide it when requested before boarding. Note also that on arrival, 25% of the journeyers who used the pre-journey check, analysis, and evaluation will be selected at random to be checked, analyzed, and evaluated a second time mandatorily. This second compulsory check, analysis, and evaluation, however, is free of charge. People who wish to visit Kauai, another island also in Hawaii, will have to go through a self-isolation phase even if they have a negative check, analysis, and evaluation end-result unless the journeyer is qualified to stay in a “resort bubble” hotel. Journeyers who fail or are unwilling to comply with Hawaii’s requirements and regulations risk being fined up to $1,000 or spending one year in prison.
