Once again, Rhode Island has been placed on travel advisory lists in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey due to the Ocean State’s increase in COVID-19 cases. The three states join Massachusetts, which has restricted travel from Rhode Island since early August.
The advisory requires individuals who are traveling from Rhode Island to New York, New Jersey, Connecticut or Massachusetts to quarantine for 14 days upon entering the state.
Reminder: People traveling from RI to MA must fill out a “Massachusetts Travel Form” and quarantine for 14 days unless they can produce a negative coronavirus test result administered no more than 72 hours prior to arriving in Massachusetts. Individuals who get a test must remain in quarantine until they receive their negative test results. Exceptions include traveling to work in a fixed office and transitory activities like grocery shopping, etc. Those who do not comply with the new MA travel order are subject to a $500 per day fine.
