Gov. Phil Murphy added Colorado to the quarantine advisory list Tuesday, recommending those traveling to New Jersey from the Centennial State to quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of last contact within the state.
Concurrently, Arizona and Virginia were removed from the list, bringing its total to 34 states and territories.
The advisory applies to anyone arriving from a state or territory with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or a state with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
“We continue to ask New Jerseyans returning home and travelers visiting the state to practice self-responsibility and good citizenship by complying with our quarantine advisories to reduce the potential for outbreaks,” said Murphy on the updated list. “It remains critically important for anyone arriving to New Jersey from these 34 states and territories to get tested for COVID-19 and self-quarantine for 14 days.”
The advisory list also includes Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Iowa, Idaho, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Wyoming.
Prior to its removal Tuesday, Arizona had been added on Sept. 22.
Travelers and residents returning home from impacted states should self-quarantine at their home, hotel, or other temporary lodgings, leaving only to seek medical care or to obtain food and other essential items.
