This may be a BIG problem for many of us! After taking off from work for our vacation, we have to be off for an additional 2 weeks when we return back!!!! https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nc ... tions.html

Correct - it's a recommendation but not a requirement.
However, each state has different requirements so you need to check your own state for its specific rules.

Many companies also may have travel requirements, too, so again...need to check with your company. Mine has a 14 day self-quarantine requirement after travel but I am working from home anyway so it really doesn't matter at this point for me - it will be just like any other day at work. :lol:

I am surprised everyone is ready to travel since the State Department has not yet relaxed the "level 4" alert for international travel (and has not announced any plans yet to change that). My understanding is that travel insurance and other coverage isn't valid during a level 4 alert...

That is correct, at least in Canada and my international insurance policy. And yes we have to self Quarantine for 14 days upon return, last time I checked. Being retired that just gives me an excuse not to move and recoup. 8). Easy to plan for if you are not dealing with ‘work’. And unless your mom expects you for Xmas :?

Currently not applicable to US travelers since Aruba is not listed as Level 3 or worse.

Isn't the state department level 4 worldwide travel advisory still in effect? I don't see any information on the State Department site that shows that is no longer the case...?

That doesn't affect quarantine - there is no nationwide quarantine - though it might affect both local/state quarantine, and (as I mentioned) travel insurance or other insurance policies.

Yes, in Canada we have (for months) had a 14 day self-isolation requirement for anyone entering the country (including Canadians).

We may or may not extend the border closure with the US on July 21. This was the 3rd extension and public sentiment here seems to favour keeping the border closed. I've had enquiries from Americans who would like to visit my border city for a few nights after the border re-opens. Until the 14 day self-isolation requirement is lifted, that would be impossible as they would need to stay for 15 days in total in order to legally leave the building to return to the border and re-enter the US.

During the 14 days after entry into Canada, leaving your home or accommodation for any purpose (other than medical emergency) is not permitted.

"Recommendations" to stay safe have been largely ignored around here (like wearing a mask...less than 50% compliance).
Not flying, not driving far these months...just my opinion.
