All travelers arriving in Massachusetts, including residents returning to the state, will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days, Gov. Charlie Baker announced today.
The order goes in to effect Wednesday, according to a statement from the governor.
It does not apply to travelers from these states:
- Rhode Island
- New Jersey
- New York
- New Hampshire
Essential workers also continue to be exempt.
Some context: The announcement follows a similar quarantine announced by Rhode Island Monday along with New York, New Jersey and Connecticut which announced their own quarantine last week.
