Governor Murphy today (July 21) advised individuals traveling to New Jersey from additional states to quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of the last contact within the identified state.
The travel advisory applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or a state with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
“It is critically important that all New Jerseyans remain committed to beating COVID-19 by remaining vigilant and continuing our collective efforts to reduce new cases and the rate of transmission throughout the state,” said Governor Murphy in a press statement. “In order to prevent additional outbreaks across New Jersey and continue with our responsible restart and recovery process, I strongly encourage all individuals arriving from these hotspot states to proactively get a COVID-19 test and self-quarantine.”
Individuals should leave the place of self-quarantine only to seek medical care/treatment or to obtain food and other essential items.
