Due to the rising COVID numbers, Christmas may look a little different. There are many guidelines that should be followed: Travel restrictions have become stricter in the U.S. over the past two weeks while the demand for travel has increased. Christmas travel is expected to be much bigger than Thanksgiving, and restrictions are subject to change on a week-by-week, state-by-state basis. There is little uniformity across the travel restrictions which are in place–some quarantines are voluntary, and some are mandatory. Some states require negative Covid-19 tests as a way to be released from self-isolation, some ask for the full fourteen days, despite a negative test result.
