The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) added the only state and only territory that were not on its COVID-19 travel advisory last weekMontana and Guamto the weekly list on Jan. 5.
Every U.S. state is now on the advisory, as are four territories.
The U.S. average daily case rate per 100,000 residents is 148.1 (62.2 last week). Illinois' daily case rate currently is 182.1 (87.1 last week). Chicago's daily case rate is 169.7 (140.3 last week).
Daily COVID case rates must be below 15 per 100,000 residents for two consecutive
weeks for a state to be removed from the advisory.
Under the advisory, unvaccinated travelers should be tested for COVID before and after
travel from any state on the advisory list and should quarantine upon arrival in Chicago. For domestic travel, the quarantine and testing recommendations do not apply to fully vaccinated travelers.
For international travel, the CDC now requires that all travelers, regardless of vaccination status or citizenship, get a negative COVID-19 viral test no more than one day before travel into the United States. CDPH guidelines follow CDC requirements for international travel.
