The Center for Disease Control has lifted its directive to quarantine for 14 days for travelers coming from states with a high COVID-19 infection rate. However, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut still have no plans to remove the two weeks required quarantine for travelers arriving from high-risk states.

In a recent news release, New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Maryland, and Montana have been removed from the Coronavirus Quarantine list, meaning visitors from these five states are no longer required to quarantine when visiting New York.

Visitors subject to quarantine come from states that have a rate of more than 10 positive tests for the new coronavirus per 100,000 residents or a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day average.

Also on Tuesday, Cuomo announced that Guam has been added to the list of areas that are subject to quarantine when visiting New York.

As of Tuesday, the list includes 28 U.S. states, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Guam
  • Hawaii
  • Iowa
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Mississippi
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • Oklahoma
  • Puerto Rico
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Virgin Islands
  • Wisconsin

The CDC said precaution is still necessary. Everyone should be social distancing, washing their hands, and wearing a mask.
