Delaware one of four new states added to Pennsylvania travel quarantine list

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — State health officials in Pennsylvania have added neighboring Delaware and three other states to the travel quarantine recommendation aimed at stemming the spread of COVID-19 in the commonwealth.

Officials say people who have traveled to Delaware, Iowa, Kansas and Oklahoma are being asked to self-quarantine for 14 days upon their return to Pennsylvania.

The state earlier issued the recommendation for self-quarantine for people returning to the commonwealth from 15 other states.

Another 17 deaths attributed to the coronavirus were announced, bringing the total to 6,897.
