Chicago is the latest city to require people from Mississippi to self-quarantine for 14 days before entering the city limits.

The Emergency Travel Order, which directs people entering or returning to Chicago from states currently experiencing surging COVID-19 numbers to quarantine, was issued last Thursday and went into effect Monday morning.

Below, you can see which states have been added to the emergency travel order:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Idaho
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • North Carolina
  • Nevada
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah

This is the second emergency travel order that Mississippi has been included in after tri-state governors announced last week that Mississippians planning on traveling to New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut need to self-quarantine for 14 days before entering the tri-state area.
