The District of Columbia on Monday released an updated list of high-risk states which require a two-week self-quarantine upon traveling from due to the threat of coronavirus.
Adding eight new ones, DC named a total of 39 states where the seven-day moving average of daily new COVID-19 cases is 10 or more per 100,000 persons.
States that were added to the updated list are Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
Those coming to the District from a high-risk state (within the prior 14 days) for non-essential activities will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days from their arrival.
If they are traveling from one of these states for essential purposes, they do not have to self-quarantine. However, they are required to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days and, if they show signs of the infectious disease, they are to self-quarantine and seek medical advice or testing.
The current list of high-risk states according to DC Health area are as follows:
