Last Updated: 08/31/2020

NOTICE TO TRAVELERS:

The State of New Jersey has issued an incoming travel advisory that all individuals traveling to or returning to New Jersey from states with a significant spread of COVID-19 are advised to self-quarantine for 14 days. For more information about the travel advisory and which states currently meet the advisory's criteria, visit covid19.nj.gov/travel.

If you are traveling internationally, check the CDC's COVID-19 travel recommendations by destination. Many countries are still categorized as a Level-3 high COVID-19 risk, and the CDC recommends avoiding all nonessential travel to these countries.

If you must travel to these countries, you may be exposed to COVID-19 and the CDC recommends taking the following steps to avoid spreading the virus after returning:

Airports

Airports remain open and air travel continues. Travellers must wear face coverings at airport terminals and on public transportation.

For flights, cancellations, or rerouting, please contact your airline directly for the latest information.

For additional domestic travel information, please visit the CDC, and for additional international travel information, please visit travel.state.gov

The situation is changing frequently, so please check the above resources for the most up-to-date information.

All decisions regarding the screening of international passengers arriving at all airports in the United States are made by federal agencies including the CDC and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). As it has since January, the Port Authority is providing all necessary support for the screening currently being carried out by the CDC and CBP of passengers at its airports and any ensuing referrals for quarantine are in cooperation with state and city health authorities.

Bridges and Tunnels

Bridges and tunnels remain open.

As of Sunday, March 22, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will only collect tolls by electronic means and temporarily suspend cash toll collection at the George Washington Bridge, Lincoln Tunnel, and Holland Tunnel.

Motorists with E-ZPass will experience no change, using any open toll lane to have the toll debited from their prepaid E-ZPass account. For motorists without E-ZPass, an image of the vehicle's license plate will be captured and a notice seeking payment of the toll will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. Motorists billed by mail will pay the amount of the standard cash toll; no additional fees will be charged.
