COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH)– Two states have been removed, and one has been added to Ohio’s travel advisory list.
Last month, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued a travel advisory for all individuals who come into Ohio from outside states where there is a positivity rate of 15 percent or higher for COVID-19. The advisory is an attempt to slow the rate of the virus spreading in Ohio. The advisory also includes anyone from Ohio who visits outside states and comes back home.
This week, Kansas and South Carolina have been removed from the travel advisory list, while Nevada has been added back after one week off.
The states in which the positivity rate of the coronavirus is 15 percent or higher:
Anyone entering Ohio after travel to these states is asked to self-quarantine for 14 days, DeWine stated.
