Current WI DHS Travel Guidance
DHS recommends Wisconsin residents cancel or postpone all nonessential travel, including travel within the state. At this time, all international and domestic travel is considered risky, and all individuals who spend time outside of their home or local community have some risk of exposure to COVID-19. If international or domestic travel cannot be avoided, be prepared to remain away for an extended period of time if travel restrictions change or if you become sick. You should also be prepared to self-quarantine at home for 14 days upon your return.
Travel between private homes within the state, including seasonal homes or rental cabins, is strongly discouraged. This is for your safety and wellbeing as well as the safety of our rural counties and tribal communities. Non-essential travel outside your current community may spread COVID-19 to areas with very limited health care infrastructure.
Several counties in Wisconsin have issued travel advisories for seasonal and second homeowners. If you choose to travel to a second home in Wisconsin, you should be prepared to immediately self-quarantine for 14 days. You should bring your own groceries and essentials, as self-quarantine does not permit shopping at local stores for supplies.
“Safer At Home” and travel. On March 24, Governor Evers implemented a “Safer at Home” order for all Wisconsin residents, which will be in effect until at least April 24, 2020. This requires that Wisconsin residents stay at home or their place of residence unless performing essential activities, such as seeking health care, food, necessary supplies and services, outdoor exercise, certain types of work, and other qualified activities. All travel within Wisconsin is prohibited other than certain essential travel, including:
Travel required by law enforcement or court order.
Travel to return home from outside your home jurisdiction.
Travel to care for the elderly, minors, dependents, persons with disabilities, or other vulnerable populations.
Travel to or from educational institutions to receive materials for distance learning, meals, or other related services.
Travel required for non-residents to return to their place of residence outside of Wisconsin.
Any travel related to performing other approved essential activities, special situations, essential government functions, essential business operations, and minimum basic operations, as described in Gov. Evers’ “Safer At Home” order.
If you are returning from travel. If you traveled anywhere outside of your local community in the past 14 days, you are being asked to stay home and monitor yourself for symptoms for 14 days after you returned. If you were able to practice social distancing during the entire time you were away (for example, you stayed in your car by yourself and kept at least 6 feet distance between yourself and others), you should still monitor your symptoms and practice social distancing.
Stay home. It is important that you avoid contact with others to avoid spreading the infection to others (this is called “self-quarantine”).
Monitor your symptoms. Check your temperature twice daily, and write down any symptoms you have (this is called ‘self-monitoring”). If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 like fever, cough, shortness of breath, or others and need medical care, call your doctor.
