The Kansas Department of Health and Environment added Colorado to its travel quarantine list

Lawrence, KS – According to the statement, that means anyone visiting any destination in Colorado on or after May 6 should enter quarantine for seven days followed by a negative COVID-19 test result upon return, or 10 days without quarantine.

The exception to this quarantine is for those who are fully vaccinated — meaning it has been greater than two weeks since vaccinations were completed.

That vaccination period has to have been within the past six months, and the individual must have remained asymptomatic since traveling. Also, if you can prove a previous COVID-19 infection with a positive PCR or antigen test within the past six months, you are not required to quarantine.

The state’s quarantine list is determined using a formula that evaluates new COVID-19 cases over a two-week period while adjusting for population size.

That number is then compared to current case rates in Kansas — any location with approximately three times more cases are added to the list.
