Trimet: What you need to know

If you are ill

If you have COVID-19 or have symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle aches, headache, chills, or fever) do not take public transit. If you need urgent care, get a ride from someone in your household. If your symptoms are life-threatening call 9-1-1.

Ride Shares

All drivers and passengers in private for-hire transportation such as taxis, Uber, and Lyft, are still required to wear masks, face shields, or face coverings.


It is best to delay travel until you are fully vaccinated.

If you are fully vaccinated, you don’t need to get tested before or quarantine after traveling within the U.S.

If you are not fully vaccinated, check the requirements of the state you are traveling to. You may be advised to get a COVID-19 test before or after travel, or to quarantine when you arrive. 

For more information about travel within the United States, see the CDC’s guide to domestic travel.

If you are planning to travel internationally, check the requirements of the country you are visiting and make a plan for testing when you return to the United States. The CDC has information about international travel requirements.
