The Chicago Department of Public Health announced today that Iowa and Kansas have been re-added to the city’s travel quarantine list. The city also said Wisconsin was removed from the list.
Last week, Iowa, Kansas and Utah were taken off the list, but now people coming from Iowa and Kansas will have to quarantine again as positive case numbers trend higher in those states.
The order says travelers and Chicago residents coming into the city from 20 states and territories must quarantine for 14 days. The states are designated by case rates greater than 15 new cases per 100,000 resident population per day over a 7-day rolling average.
Chicago Department of Public Commissioner Allison Arwady said today that Arizona and North Carolina are likely to be dropped from the list next week as their numbers improve.
Chicago updates its emergency travel order on Tuesdays. The initial order went into effect on July 6.
