DC Updates High-Risk Coronavirus States List, Removing Delaware, Ohio, Washington

-

The District of Columbia updated its list of “high-risk states” for coronavirus on Monday, removing three states and adding five new ones.

Delaware, Ohio and Washington state are no longer on the list that changes every two weeks.

When DC put Delaware on its first high-risk areas list issued on July 27, Dale Cooke, the mayor of Dewey Beach, criticized DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s decision, calling it a “mistake.”

The updated list now includes Alaska, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Minnesota, with the total number of states reaching 29.

Traveling to the District from these states for non-essential purposes requires self-quarantining for 14 days upon arrival.

The full list of the states designated as high-risk areas by DC is as follows:

Alabama
Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
California
Florida
Georgia
Idaho
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nebraska
Nevada
New Mexico
North Carolina
North Dakota
Oklahoma
South Carolina
Tennessee
Texas
Utah
Wisconsin

The list will be updated again on August 24.

The number of coronavirus infections in DC is nearing 13,000, and the death toll from COVID-19 is close to 600.
