N.J. now wants travelers from 3 more states to quarantine for 14 days. Delaware is included.

Source: NJ.com

With a key indicator of the contagion inching upward, New Jersey is now calling for people traveling from three more states — including neighboring Delaware — to self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving in the Garden State to protect against the coronavirus.

Kansas and Oklahoma were also added to the list, Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration announced Tuesday.

In all, New Jersey says travelers from 19 states — or 38% of the U.S. — with rising new COVID-19 cases should self-quarantine for two weeks, including residents who visited those states and are now returning home.

They are: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah.

So, I need to keep the windows closed (and not stop at the Biden service area) when driving up from DC?

2. Its voluntary as there are really no way to enforce it & business travelers are exempt,

I see there are signs in the Airports about it but Like NY & Conn its really is a feel good order. nt

4. Isn't this what the EU did to stop the spread?

Actually they took it a step further by closing their borders, for what length of time, I'm not sure. But it seemed to bring things under control along with taking personal precautions. Why can't that be done here?

5. Truckers for one.

We are too interdependent on each other - closing state borders would make it impossible for mail to move, food and goods to circulate, people getting to work who live in bordering states etc.

It would be pretty much impossible.

7. Of course, that's why we're all here - and I barely know anything.

Your question is a really good one and if it could be implemented it would most certainly go a heck of a long way toward stopping the spread.
