Connecticut has expanded the number of states and territories to its travel advisory list.
New states are Minnesota and Kentucky as well as Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. There are now more than 30 states and territories on Connecticut’s travel precaution list.
Anyone traveling into Connecticut from one of the travel advisory communities must fill out a travel health form. The forms can be found at ct.gov/travelform. Violators face fines of up to $1,000.
In addition to the new states added, the following states are on Connecticut’s travel advisory as well:
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- New Mexico
- South Carolina
States are added to the list if they have a new daily COVID-19 positive test rate that is higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or has a higher than a 10-percent positivity rate average over a seven-day period.
People entering Connecticut from one of these states are directed to self-quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of the last contact within a listed state. People who spent less than 24 hours or traveled as part of being an essential worker in a listed state are exempt from self-quarantine.
