Any state with a positive Covid test rate of 10 percent or greater over a seven-day period will fall into that list; another measure used will be the rate of daily new cases per 100,000 people in a state. The list of states subject to the rules will be updated weekly, said Acting Connecticut Department of Health Commission Deidre Gifford.
If you have traveled to any of these states or are from the states on the list, you are unable to participate in our programs until the mandatory 14 day quarantine period has been done without any signs of illness.
