As coronavirus cases continue to rise around the nation, D.C. added eight states to its list of high-risk states where the seven-day moving average of daily new coronavirus cases is 10 or more per 100,000 persons.
Added to the list are the following states: Arizona; Colorado; Connecticut; Massachusetts; Michigan; Ohio; Pennsylvania; and Rhode Island.
In total, there are 39 states on the list.
D.C. did not remove any of the states that previously were on the list.
