CONNECTICUT — Rhode Island, Arizona, Minnesota, Nevada and Wyoming were added to Connecticut’s coronavirus travel advisory list Tuesday. No states were dropped, bringing the number of restricted areas to 35, according to the latest report from the state Department of Public Health.

Under the latest regulations released by Gov. Ned Lamont last week, travelers from those areas either have to self-quarantine for 14 days or have proof of a negative coronavirus test result within 72 hours of arriving in the state.

States are put on the advisory list if they have a daily positive coronavirus test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or a 10 percent or higher positive rate over a seven-day rolling average. Failure to complete a travel health form carries a civil penalty of $1,000 for each violation.

The “red” areas are on Connecticut’s coronavirus travel advisory list as of Sept. 15. The list is updated weekly.

Travelers who are required to self-quarantine may do so at their home, a hotel or other temporary lodging. Connecticut, New York and New Jersey asked hotels to communicate the quarantine requirements to guests who have traveled from one of the affected states.

There are some exceptions to the rule. Workers traveling from affected states to Connecticut and vice versa who work in critical infrastructure as designated by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, including students in exempt health care professions, and any state, local and federal officials and employees, are exempt from the quarantine requirement when such travel is work-related. Such essential workers are required to complete the travel health form, however.

While there currently are no Connecticut-imposed restrictions on international travel, the federal government continues to provide international travel recommendations for anyone living inside the United States. For guidance on international travel, see the “COVID-19 Travel Recommendations” published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
