Two states have been added and none removed this week from a travel advisory for entering Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.

Alaska and Montana are back on the list after they were taken off it last week. Travelers will have to quarantine for 14 days.

This brings the list to a total of 30 states and Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands, all of which have high rates of Covid-19 infections. States exempt from the requirement are the five other New England states, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Wyoming, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Bill began his radio journey on Long Island, followed by stops in Schenectady, Bridgeport, Boston and New York City. He’s glad to be back on the air in Fairfield County, where he has lived with his wife and two sons for more than 20 years.
