Here’s the latest on the coronavirus outbreak in the region:
Governor Ned Lamont has relaxed the standards for states to qualify for Connecticut’s COVID-19 travel advisory list.
Now, states with 10 cases per 100,000 people and a 5 percent positive rate will be added to the list. That rule change also prevents Connecticut from ending up on its own list.
Connecticut and New Jersey qualify for New York’s travel advisory list of 43 states. Governor Andrew Cuomo has kept both states off the list because he says it is not practical to limit essential travel that crosses the borders.
Cuomo says non-essential travel between Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania is discouraged.
