Few states left on Massachusetts lower-risk COVID-19 travel list



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:

Lower-risk State
Transitory travel
Persons Commuting for Work or School
Patients Seeking or Receiving Medical Treatment
Military Personnel
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.
