D.C.’s List of High-Risk Coronavirus States Now at 42

The District’s list of high-risk states for coronavirus transmission now includes virtually the entire country, as a resurgence in cases has gripped the nation in recent weeks.

The city health department added California, New Jersey and Oregon Monday to its list of high-risk states where anyone from them coming to the city for nonessential activities will be mandated to self-quarantine for 14 days.

No states were removed from the list.

There are now 42 states on the list that have a seven-day moving average of daily new COVID-19 cases of 10 or more per 100,000 persons.

The only other states not currently on D.C.’s list are Washington, Hawaii, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Neighboring Maryland and Virginia are exempted from the list.

The city plans to update the list on Nov. 16.

As of Monday, D.C. has more than 17,000 coronavirus cases and 647 related deaths, according to health department statistics.
