A national executive order requires people to wear face masks while using public transportation throughout the United States. This includes airports, airplanes, trains, subways, buses, taxis and rideshare services. Masks are mandatory at all times inside Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The city of Atlanta requires masks for public buildings owned or leased by the city. Private businesses may mandate mask requirements at their discretion.
Masks will be required while attending Plastic Surgery The Meeting and ASPS will make masks available for anyone who needs one. ASPS will have hand sanitation stations throughout the convention center. Our protocols will be updated as recommendations change.
A negative COVID-19 test or proof of recovery from COVID-19 is required for all air passengers arriving in the United States.
Here are some additional frequently asked questions for international travelers.
Is my vaccine valid in the United States to attend Plastic Surgery The Meeting? International attendees can use this link to find out if their vaccine will be accepted as valid proof of COVID-19 immunity by your destination country.
Do I need a COVID-19 test to fly into the United States? All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens and fully vaccinated people, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States.
Do I need to get tested for COVID-19 before traveling to the United States if I am fully vaccinated?
Fully vaccinated international travelers arriving in the United States are still required to get tested 3 days before travel by air into the United States (or show documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months) and should still get tested 3-5 days after their trip.

U.S. territories include American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
What are some guidelines for traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Wear a mask over your nose and mouth. Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who is not traveling with you. Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).
