Governor DeWine issues updated travel advisory: Here’s what it means

The advisory includes any state with a positive testing rate over 15%, with a recommendation that anyone coming from those states self-quarantine for 14 days.

The advisory is updated every Wednesday.

Currently, the states involved in the advisory are Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Arizona, Nevada and Idaho.

“Obviously, people should be careful no matter where they go,” said the governor. The list of states will be updated every week, according to the governor.

“It is an advisory, not an order,” said the governor, “but we want to notify people, and would ask them to protect everyone, to protect their family, and protect others, if you are coming from one of those states you’ve been visiting there, we would ask you to self quarantine. We know all of these things are sacrifices, but we hope that these are short term sacrifices for something we all want to see, and that is to get this virus under control and be able to do more things as we move into the fall.”
