Spring Break Travel Restrictions for Mexico


Going on vacation for spring break? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently relaxed its guidance on mask-wearing and other COVID-19 precautions. But travelers still need to know what requirements are in place at their destination.

Popular spring break locations for Arizonans — including Hawaii, Mexico, Southern California, and Las Vegas — have varying guidelines in place.

And while most places have eased their pandemic policies, re-entering the United States by air still requires a negative COVID-19 test. And you still have to wear your mask at the airport and on the plane.

Here’s what spring break travelers should know about the latest COVID-19 protocols in popular vacation spots in the United States and Mexico.
