    Are any of you guys traveling during covid/19 ?

    I keep hearing about states requiring a 10-14 quarantine upon arrival , how are they monitoring this?

    How do they know when one enters their state ? Say I leave here, travel to ?? & check into a hotel, are the hotels required to notify a state agency ?

    I'm just curious about all these state travel restrictions I keep hearing about.

    Not heard of anything like that other than if traveled out of the country. My wife flies to worksites around the country (AZ, CO, IN, NC) and hasn’t had a problem. Usually only staying 1-3 days at a time.

    Thank God I don't have to travel like that anymore. For me, it's not really about being worried about COVID - I HATE getting on airplanes now. I just don't want to do it ever again if I don't have to. Planes are flying petrie dishes. And they were like that before COVID ever hit. These airlines have destroyed the whole experience. It used to be exciting, even kinda romantic to prepare for a trip. and the flying experience used to be pretty neat. Now it's a f*cking joke. People show up dressed like bums, airline staff is so rude I can't believe it, seats that are so small you have to shoehorn yourself in and out of them, Idiots taking 2 week old babies on board that do nothing but scream the entire flight - No thank you! I'll ride or drive.

    Traveling from Indiana to Ohio or Illinois supposed to quarantine 14 days. I don't know how that works my guess is just the honor system. I doubt motel are gonna report someone but I guess anything is possible. They might want to keep you 14 days for the money.

    I know a guy that just got back from 8 months in the Middle East. His job put him on 2 weeks quarantine ( 2 week vacation ) . He got on a plane and flew to see a friend... He'll probably tell his employer about his flight to get more leave.

    Been to 10-12 states since this started, outside of the planes be low on folks at times. No issues, so far. I chose not to alter my life, you do not want to get sick then you stay home.

    Well, welcome to Illinois except Chicago proper. I can't count how many states are on the quarantine list from Chicago anymore. My wife flew to NC with no issues recently.

    That said, midwest states are starting to spike. We're planning on meeting some folks out and about, at places that do proper social distancing, over the next few weeks because I can almost guarantee Illinois is going to get shutdown hard again.This is not a political comment, just an observation from living here for most of my 60 years.

    Hope this winter goes by fast. Ride safe, stay safe folks.

    It happened in Hawaii. Hotel turned a couple in that were there for vacation but told they had to quarantine in their room for 14 days. Somehow the hotel manager saw they post a selfie of social media while outside their room and reported them. They were arrested and then told to return to their room and finish quarantine.

    This was a good while ago when things were popping off. Hawaii law enforcement was really disappointing me.

    Looks like they were arrested twice.

    Couple rearrested after violating Hawaii's quarantine order for the second time

    Well it's BS so yeah I can understand them violating the order.

    I give up on traveling this year because of the virus. Not that I had big plans but until July/August a lot of tourist stuff was still closed. Getting better now as everyone is tired of closures and figuring out how to work around it.

    We usually go to Vegas for a family thing that we canceled.

    Then I had time off and wanted to take a road trip to Moab and do some off roading hitting some spots on the way up and back. Like you said many things were closed so I decided to just stay home.

    Plus my job was making some people quarantine after going to some places. I didn't want to burn time for vacation and then burn more when I get back.

    When I did my trip down to NC , it made no sense as to what was open. Saturday night the dinning room was closed at Zaxby's yet the Outback around the corner had a 90 minute wait and you could go inside and sit down. We walked thru the drive thru. Sunday we ate inside a Bojangles for breakfast and later in TN I spotted some sports bar and grill, we went in and enjoyed our meal. Monday morning breakfast took a couple stops before we were able to go inside and eat.
