According to the New Jersey COVID-19 Information Hub, this applies to travel from states with “a positive COVID-19 test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.”


As seen in the graphic above, this applies to Washington, Utah, Arizona, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina. More states may be added to this list as cases increase, so travelers should be sure to check the status of cases in the state they are traveling from prior to returning to NJ.


California, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada and Tennessee have since been added to this list.


This new advisory also applies to New Jerseyans returning home from one of these states.
