Ohio scraps its COVID-19 travel advisory map

Ohio will no longer release a weekly COVID-19 travel advisory map.

Ohio stopped releasing a weekly COVID-19 vacation advisory map this 7 days, with state wellness officials advising Ohioans to check the latest Facilities for Illness Manage and Avoidance direction when producing designs.

The map was initial launched previous summer months and was primarily based on state coronavirus exam positivity charges. Travelers to Ohio from states with a fee of 15% or larger ended up advised to quarantine for 14 times. The suggestion was not obligatory nor was it enforced.

In early December, climbing check positivity prices placed Ohio on its individual map. The 7-working day average positivity amount was 3.1% on Monday, the most latest day that information is readily available.

Five states would have probable been on the map this week, according to the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 dashboard: Iowa, Alabama, Idaho, Missouri and Kansas.
