Philadelphia, NJ & NY Imposed 14 Day Quarantine On Travelers From Delaware

The City of Philadelphia, the States of New Jersey, and New York have added Delaware to their respective quarantine list due to Delaware’s recent uptick in COVID-19 cases.

Officials announced Wednesday that travelers from the following states will be asked to quarantine for 14 days:

Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah.

If self-isolation is not practical, health officials recommend wearing a mask at all times around non-household members, including around coworkers, and closely pay attention to their health and monitor for the development of any new onset cough, fever, or other COVID-19 symptoms. If any symptoms occur, they should stay home and seek out testing.
