42 states now on DC’s high-risk coronavirus list

Forty-two states are now on D.C.’s updated list of high-risk states where anyone from them who is coming to D.C. for non-essential activities will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.

D.C. on Monday added California, New Jersey and Oregon to its list, and it did not remove any states.

The states on the list have a seven-day moving average of daily new coronavirus cases of 10 or more per 100,000 persons.

“Individuals traveling from high-risk states after essential travel or arriving in the District for essential travel are required to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days and, if they show signs or experience symptoms of COVID-19, they are to self-quarantine and seek medical advice or testing,” a news release from D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office said.

Maryland and Virginia remain exempt from Bowser’s order.
