Transcript for Rules and restrictions to keep in mind on the road this summer
We're back with the new rule force summit here indication. A quick getaway can be tricky even if you plan on skipping the airport and hitting the road. Different states have different restrictions and our Becky Worley joins us from San Francisco to explain all of this. Becky, good morning. Reporter: That week of summer vacation when you can really relax, well, unfortunately it's going to take a lot more thought and planning this year. Getting away from the stress of everyday life is adding stress to those planning summer trips. Across the country at least 22 states have some form of travel and quarantine restrictions. In my home state, Hawaii, there is a 14-day quarantine rule. You can't leave your hotel room at all. Violations come with a $5,000 fine and up to a year in jail. So far authorities say dozens of visitors have been cited and arrested. The visitors bureau coining it aloha later but it's a very different story in Wyoming. The slogan is wy responsibly. Wide-open safe haven for visitors. We haven't gone anywhere. That's probably why we're ready to do something outside our Reporter: This family is planning to go from Idaho to Montana for some r&r, but -- We're trying to be prepared for potentially needing to cancel the trip. Reporter: That flexibility is smart says the former head of the CDC, Dr. Tom Frieden. Think ahead and think about the risks and benefits. Reporter: He says research the local travel restrictions extensively and think through the steps of getting there. Winging it, he said, is not a good idea. You want to make sure that where you're going, you're going to be welcome and able to do the things you plan to do. Reporter: For the clump family of Louisville, Kentucky, they're considering a flight to Florida for a family reunion in July. I can see it being a bit challenging to keep a mask on our 6-year-old for -- it's a two-hour flight there and then we have a layover in Baltimore for four hours. Reporter: So they are considering driving to the sunshine state. But Florida, one of the most popular destinations has another consideration. If you're coming from the tri-state area of New York, new Jersey or Connecticut, you must self-isolate for 14 days in your vacation lodging. If you're in an area that is low risk you don't want to go to a high risk place. If you're in an area that is high risk you need to be Reporter: No matter where you're going. If you have an underlying health condition like diabetes or kidney failure or you're older, you really need to think twice about exposing yourself to that kind of risk. Reporter: Vacation this summer is a lot more complicated. Overnight the governor of Hawaii just said he will extend the quarantine order past the original June 30th end date. There had been high hopes the 50th state would re-open July 1st. We were slated to go July 2nd and that means no visits with my parents for an indefinite amount of time. Whit, this did the longest my kids have ever gone not seeing their grandparents. I think your in-laws are there too. It's hard for the kids and We have the same conversation. My wife's parents are there. The question, how will local authorities enforce some of these rules? Yeah, when a state mandates self-isolation or quarantine, that means total lockdown so no grocery trip no, walks on the in Ohio the hotels have been told to issue room keys that deactivate if you leave your room and try and go back in. When you visit the front desk they're required to call the police. But how these regulations are enforced state to state can vary. Some are warnings and some like the one-time key restrictions, much Stricker. Got to pay attention to the rules.
