Just 16 states can travel to New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut without restrictions
New York, New Jersey and Connecticut on Tuesday revised the list of states whose residents must self-quarantine when visiting the Tristate area. Visitors from only 16 states can travel freely to the region.
For the first time in weeks, four states - Delaware, Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia - have been included in the travel advisory.
The majority of state visitors must self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival or face a fine of up to $ 2,000 in New York for failing to provide contact information for contact tracing purposes.

Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) next to Govs. Phil Murphy (D-NJ) and Ned Lamont (D-CT) first announced the joint travel report on June 24th to limit the transmission of COVID-19. The initial announcement covered only nine states and has grown to 34 states plus Guam, a US territory.
Each condition is assessed based on its active outbreak numbers. Visitors must self-quarantine if their home state has a positive test rate of more than 10 per 100,000 residents over an average of seven days or a positive case rate of more than 10% over the same period.
