DC has issued an updated version of its “high-risk states” list, which consists of areas that are considered dangerous in terms of coronavirus and require self-quarantine if you travel to DC from them.
The current list has a total of 29 states. Delaware, which has been on and off the list over the past weeks, is not included. Montana and Ohio were added, while Alaska and Arizona have been removed.
People traveling from these states to the District for non-essential purposes must self-quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival.
Those coming from high-risk states for essential activities or arriving in the city for essential travel do not have to self-quarantine. However, they must monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 for two weeks from their arrival.
In the event that they show signs or experience symptoms of the infectious disease, they are required to self-quarantine and seek medical advice or testing.
Here are the states designated as “high-risk areas” by the DC Department of Health:
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
The District released its first high-risk areas list on July 27. DC Health updates the list every two weeks. The next update is expected on Monday, September 21.
