NJ Expands Travel Advisories to 31 States

NJ Expands Travel Advisories to 31 States

While new cases and deaths have held relatively stable in New Jersey, it’s clear that coronavirus is spreading rapidly in other US states. The state government of New Jersey has now expanded travel advisories to include 31 states, cautioning New Jerseyans about straying too far from home.

The newly-detailed travel advisory expands upon advisories issued in June. Officials are including any states with a positive test rate above 10 per 100,000 residents.

In addition to warning against travel, the advisory also asks that anyone traveling to NJ from the outlined states—including New Jerseyans returning home—voluntarily quarantine for 14 days.

While self-quarantine is firmly recommended, officials acknowledge that they cannot forcibly impose quarantine on citizens. The advisory also specifies that they do not expect compliance from those required to travel for employment reasons.

The states considered inadvisable to travel to currently include:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arkansas
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Idaho
  • Indiana
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Montana
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • New Mexico
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin

New Jersey is working alongside New York and Connecticut to maintain and accurately update travel advisories.
