CONNECTICUT — Maine and New Hampshire were added to Connecticut's coronavirus travel advisory list Tuesday. That brought the number of restricted states and territories to 46, according to the latest report from the state Department of Public Health. No areas were taken off the list.
Nonessential travel among New York, New Jersey and Connecticut remains discouraged but not formally restricted.
States or territories are added to the advisory list if they have a daily positive coronavirus test rate higher than 10 cases per 100,000 residents or a 10 percent or higher positive rate over a seven-day rolling average. Travelers who fail to complete a travel health form face a civil penalty of $1,000 for each violation.
Workers traveling from affected states to Connecticut and vice versa who work in critical infrastructure as designated by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, including students in certain health care professions, and any state, local and federal officials and employees, are exempt from the quarantine requirement, provided such travel is work-related. Those essential workers must still complete the travel health form, however.
While there currently are no Connecticut-imposed restrictions on international travel, the federal government continues to provide international travel recommendations for anyone living inside the United States. For guidance on international travel, see the "COVID-19 Travel Recommendations" published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As of Tuesday, the following 46 locations were included in Connecticut's travel advisory:
