COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced a travel advisory for people coming into the state from other states with testing rates of 15% or higher for COVID-19.
The recommendation is that people self-quarantine for 14 days after coming to Ohio from one of those states. The list will be updated weekly.
As of Oct. 28, states at 15% or higher are Alabama, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, South Dakota, Utah and Wisconsin
DeWine said people should self-quarantine at home in or a hotel.
This applies to visitors as well as people who live in Ohio returning from vacation or business travel.
Wyoming and Mississippi are shaded gray this week on the map. According to the state's website, these states are showing multiple days in the past week without overall testing volume, so an accurate positivity rate cannot be calculated. It is advised people reconsider traveling to these two states.
