“Connecticut, Kentucky, Maine, Nebraska, Oregon, and Wyoming have experienced reporting irregularities with the total number of tests performed this past week, which means we are not able to calculate an accurate positivity rate,” officials said.

If someone must travel, ODH recommends 14 days of self-quarantine after leaving those locations. This includes for both business and leisure.

The travel advisory is updated once a week on Wednesdays using data from that Tuesday.
