NEW: Healthcare Ready has updated this page to include a single map outlining COVID-19 vaccine credentialing, mask/face covering mandates, travel restrictions, and states of emergency related to COVID-19.
This page also contains a map showing states’ and cities’ access and re-entry programs and any considerations for those programs during COVID-19.
This map highlights the vaccine credentialing status, mask and/or face covering guidance and authority, travel restrictions, and state of emergency status of each US state and territory. This map focuses primarily on state-level guidance but may also include information on major city or county orders. Please see below for a summary of map components.
The first tab of the map displays the state vaccine credentialing / proof of vaccination system status. A vaccine credential is a document or application that contains a person’s vaccination records and as such provides confirmation that a person has been vaccinated. In this map, “proof of vaccination system” refers to a system administered at the state level that allows vaccine credentialing. This could include applications such as digital vaccine passports. Settings that require proof of vaccination against COVID-19 can include places of work, private businesses, and school systems.
There are four possible statuses for the Vaccine Credentialing Map:
State Mask and/or Face Covering Guidance
The second tab of the map displays mask and/or face covering authority as the map legend, aiming to communicate mandates in place at the state-level. Exemptions often exist and are indicated in the measure description.
There are five possible statuses for the State Mask / Face Covering Guidance Map:
The tooltip of the map also displays information on local mask and/or face covering authority, which indicates if local officials or entities can institute mask mandates at the local level (i.e., in jurisdictions within the state like counties or cities).
The third tab of the map displays travel restrictions as the map legend. For this map, travel restrictions generally refer to travel in and out of a state or territory. This type of travel restriction generally applies to all forms of transportation (e.g., car, air, bus, etc.)
State exemptions from restrictions exist, which is indicated as such in the state’s or territory’s description of measures.
There are two possible statuses for the Travel Restrictions map:
State of Emergency
The final tab of the map displays State of Emergency as the map legend. This map highlights where governors have issued a state of emergency or emergency declaration for COVID-19 that is currently active as of the last update of the map (this date is reflected in the map). A state of emergency can be declared if a situation has occurred or may be imminent, which requires additional policies to alleviate or prevent damages, loss, hardship, or suffering.
There are two possible statuses for the State of Emergency map:
How to Use the Map
The map below is viewable through four different filters, which you can select using the tabs at the top of the map. Each tab changes only the Map Legend. Each map contains all relevant information, regardless of the tab. Hover over a state or territory to display detailed information about the guidance in place for that location.
Clicking on a state or territory will “pin” the displayed information, keeping it in place even if you remove your mouse from the map. Once the state or territory has been clicked, sources for each subject will appear in the lower left-hand side of the display box.
Access and re-entry refers to the ability to access an area impacted by an emergency or local crisis, traditionally a natural disaster like a hurricane or tornado. Some states have formal access and re-entry programs to help ensure ahead of time that first responders, critical infrastructure workers, and those transporting critical supplies can enter an area during a crisis to deliver assistance or keep infrastructure operational.
This map shows formal access and re-entry programs by state. In addition to using this map to understand if states are using these programs to dictate access to areas under COVID-19 restrictions, organizations involved in the COVID-19 response can use this map to prepare in case they may need to enter an area impacted by a natural disaster or other emergency.
There are three possible designations for a state on this map:
Click on a state to view details about that state’s access and re-entry program.
Healthcare Ready created a COVID-19 Travel and Transportation Map to provide a global overview of measures taken by countries and businesses in response to COVID-19 impacting the movement of people and goods across countries. The tracker assigns scores in seven major transportation and movement variables pertaining to the movement of people and goods across countries.
The map displays information for measures related to the following seven (7) major transportation/movement variables: exports and imports, ports, land borders, flights, entry, exit, and other economic measures.
Hover over a country to view specific measures that country has in place.
The global map was last updated on April 8, 2020 at 5:30pm ET.
Note: While most countries’ current measures should be accurate as of the above date and time, due to the volume and frequency of updates it is recommended that users confirm information before citing or acting upon it.
