Returning to the US, to a State that requires a Covid-19 test for re-entry?

This winter, several US States have notified their residents that whether you are returning from out of state, or from out of country, you will be required to present a negative Covid-19 PCR test, or if you have not been tested, you will be asked to quarantine in your home for 7-14 days.  Getting tested 2 days prior to your departure is something to consider if you live in one of the states that is imposing these re-entry requirements. Check your state’s health department website to see what quarantine regulations are in places for travelers returning from being out of the country.
