More new states will be added to the Massachusetts’ travel high-risk list for COVID-19.
District of Columbia, New York, Washington State will be removed as lower-risk, effective 12:01 a.m. on November 14, 2020.
The only lower-risk states left are Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
While Maine is on Massachusetts’ list of lower-risk states, Massachusetts will be no longer exempt on Monday from Maine’s COVID-19 rules, which require either a 14-day quarantine or a negative coronavirus test within 72-hours.
All individuals entering Massachusetts who are over the age of 18 or an unaccompanied minor must complete and submit the on-line Massachusetts Travel Form unless the individual meets an exemption below:
Persons Commuting for Work or School
Patients Seeking or Receiving Medical Treatment
Workers Providing Critical Infrastructure Services
Massachusetts residents are urged to limit any out-of-State travel only to states designated as COVID-19 lower-risk States.
In determining whether you are required to complete the Massachusetts Travel Form and whether you may be required to comply with the 14-day quarantine requirement, you will be treated as “arriving from” a place other than a COVID-19 lower-risk state if you were present in any State or jurisdiction not on the list of COVID-19 lower-risk states for more than a transitory period of time in the last 14 days.
A $500 per day fine could result for not complying.
