More States Added to CT Quarantine List

Gov. Ned Lamont today doubled the number of states from which travelers to Connecticut are directed to self-quarantine for two weeks.

Connecticut now advises travelers from 16 states with high COVID-19 infection rates to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival or obtain a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours.

The states are California, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada and Tennessee, in addition to Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah.

In Connecticut, there won’t be any fines or penalties if travelers don’t comply. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said there may be fines in his state for violators, suggesting $2,000 for the first offense and up to $10,000 for repeat offenses.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said today that travelers from Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New York and New Jersey would not have to quarantine if coming to his state. Massachusetts has had a recommended 14-day quarantine in place since March 27.
