The District of Columbia has renewed its list of “high-risk states” for coronavirus, bringing the total number to 42 on Monday.
The list that receives an update every two weeks indicates the states, traveling to DC from which requires a 14-day-long self-quarantine due to the threat of coronavirus unless it is an essential trip.
The newly added states are California, New Jersey and Oregon, while the states on the previous list remained.
The states that have a seven-day moving average of daily new coronavirus cases of 10 or more per 100,000 persons are considered “high-risk” areas in terms of the spread of coronavirus, according to DC Department of Health.
Individuals traveling to the District from one of these states for essential purposes do not have to self-quarantine. But they are required to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days and, if they show signs of the infectious disease, they must self-quarantine and seek medical advice or testing.
Here’s the current list of high-risk states according to DC Health:
The next update of the list will be released on November 16.
