On December 17, 2020, the governor issued an emergency order requiring Marylanders to limit all travel to essential purposes only. All Marylanders who do travel outside of Maryland or any individuals who do travel to Maryland must either obtain a negative COVID-19 test result or self-quarantine for 10 days. This applies to all states, with the exception of Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, DC. Read the governor’s order and the companion health directives.
The following information was provided by the Maryland Department of Health on the MEMA Public-Private Partnership call on December 22, 2020.
"Hotels are not required to enforce the travel advisory or testing requirements for their guests. However, hotels are encouraged to provide information and educational materials to inform their guests of what is required and how to get tested. Ideally this would be done both at the time of booking as well as during check-in."
Additional information regarding the Executive Order is on the MHLA COVID-19 Resources page.
