A new color-coded map has been released to help explain how the new travel order works:
Chicago's travel order now separates states into a color-coded, three-tiered map, requiring a quarantine, or in some cases, a negative test result or the standard masks and social distancing.
The city announced the changes Tuesday, categorizing states into one of three colors to determine which requirements are in effect for travelers: red, orange or yellow.
In total, 44 states and territories are listed on the emergency travel order, designated as either orange or red states on the new map.
Here's a look at the new guidelines:
Yellow: States with a rolling 7-day average less than 15 cases/day/100k residents.
- No quarantine or pre-arrival test required. Maintain strict masking, social distancing and avoidance of in-person gatherings
Orange: States have a rolling 7-day average between 15 cases/day/100k residents and the Chicago rolling 7-day average (currently 60)
- 14-day quarantine OR pre-arrival negative test no more than 72 hours before arrival in Chicago with strict masking, social distancing and avoidance of in-person gatherings
Red: States have a higher 7-day rolling average of positive cases/day/100k Chicago residents.
- 14-day quarantine
