The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) added two states to its weekly COVID-19 travel advisory on Nov. 23.
The advisory stands at 40 states and one territory.
Connecticut, whose daily COVID Case rate per 100,000 residents has risen to 20.7 (from 11.1) over the past week, was returned to the advisory, as was Maryland, which is at 15.1.
California and Guam, each with a daily case rate of 10.8, are eligible to come off the list next week, as is North Carolina (11.6). States are removed from the advisory when they maintain a daily COVID case rate below 15 per 100,000 residents in two consecutive weeks.
As of Nov. 23, all states and territories except for Alabama, D.C., Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and the Virgin Islands are on the travel advisory.
CDPH reminds unvaccinated travelers that under the Advisory, they should be tested for COVID before and after travel from any state on the advisory list and should quarantine upon arrival in Chicago. The quarantine and testing recommendations do not apply to fully vaccinated travelers.
