Guidance on traveling and travel restrictions varies across the United States as the country faces new surges in Covid-19 cases.

The patchwork of restrictions between regions highlights the ability of states to take different approaches while dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

While all of the Northeast and most of the mid-Atlantic states have implemented statewide travel restrictions, more than half the states, including two of the biggest, Texas and Florida, have no such restrictions.

California, Oregon and Washington introduced tough travel restrictions in November, requiring all out-of-state visitors and returning residents to self-quarantine for two weeks on arrival.

States hit the hardest when the epidemic began in the United States last spring, such as New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, also have some of the most stringent travel restrictions.

Instead of opting for statewide restrictions, some local officials have imposed restrictions on travel to the most populous cities.
