Friends and Neighbors,

I just wanted to let you know that Governor Lamont recently announced several Executive Orders and other protective measures, including an expansion of the state’s travel advisory which now includes 22 states.

Issued Monday, July 13th, Executive Order No. 7GGG enacted the following provisions:

  • Authorization for temporary rental housing program: Authorizes the creation of a rental housing assistance program Governor Lamont announced late last month.
  • Temporary mortgage relief program: Authorizes the creation of a mortgage assistance program Governor Lamont announced late last month.

Issued Tuesday, July 14th, Executive Order No. 7HHH enacted the following provisions:

  • Authorization for continued temporary suspension of the requirements for licensure, certification, or registration of out-of-state providers: Allows the commissioner of the Department of Public Health to temporarily suspend the requirements for licensure, certification, or registration for certain out-of-state healthcare providers in order to supplement the state’s ability to respond to the pandemic.

The governor also expanded the state’s regional travel advisory to include 22 states with high COVID-19 infection rates

The regional travel advisory between Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York that went into effect last month and directs incoming travelers from states with a significant community spread of COVID-19 to self-quarantine for a 14-day period was updated today and now includes a total of 22 states. Four states have been added (Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio, and Wisconsin), and Delaware has been removed.

The quarantine applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.

The list of 22 states meeting this criteria as of today includes:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Iowa
  • Idaho
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi
  • North Carolina
  • New Mexico
  • Nevada
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Wisconsin

This list will continue to be updated on a regular basis as the situation develops across the country. Anyone seeking the most up-to-date information on the regional travel advisory is encouraged to visit the state’s coronavirus website at ct.gov/coronavirus.
