NEW JERSEY -- New Jersey added Maine and New Hampshire to its travel advisory list on Tue Nov 17. Now, travelers from these 46 states and territories are being asked to self-quarantine for 14 days: AL, AK, AZ, AR, CA, CO, FL, GA, GU, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NE, NV, NH, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PR, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, WA, WV, WI, WY
Although neighboring states Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware meet the criteria for New Jersey's travel advisory, neither has been placed on the list. Due to the interconnected nature of the region and mode of transport between New Jersey and those states, a 14-day quarantine would be unreasonable. Non-essential travel to and from these states, however, is highly discouraged at this time. New York and Connecticut also are discouraging non-essential travel to and from New Jersey, but are not mandating travelers to self-quarantine, again due to the interconnected nature of the region and economy.
"We are in the midst of a second wave," said Gov. Phil Murphy. "We MUST crush this curve. Wear a mask. Social distance. Avoid large gatherings."
