New York, New Jersey and Connecticut revised the list of states with high rates of COVID-19. Individuals traveling to NJ, NY and CT from these states are required to quarantine for 14 days and be tested for COVID-19 approximately five days after their arrival. This travel advisory applies to anyone coming from a state with a transmission rate above 10 per 100,000 people on a seven-day rolling average or 10 percent of the total population testing positive on a seven-day rolling average. 

Currently, the thirty six states and jurisdictions that are impacted by this requirement are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

We strongly urge all members of our community to follow this guidance and to avoid non-essential travel to these states. No person who is required to quarantine pursuant to this restriction will be permitted on Stevens’ campus until the conclusion of such quarantine and COVID-19 testing. If you are currently working on campus or are planning to return to campus during Stevens’ phased reopening plan and have visited a high risk state, please remain at home and contact your supervisor, Human Resources or Student Health Services to receive guidance regarding quarantine and COVID-19 testing requirements.
