Travelers to N.J. from Delaware directed to self-quarantine

New Jersey, New York and Connecticut’s travel warning list just got longer.

People traveling to those states from Delaware will now be directed to self-quarantine for at least 14 days. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that Kansas and Oklahoma also now meet the metrics to qualify for the travel advisory.

The quarantine directive applies to any person arriving from a state with a new positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a seven-day rolling average, or with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a seven-day rolling average. The current list of states now totals 19.
