CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York announced in unison on Tuesday people traveling from Ohio to their states are subject to 14 days of quarantine upon their arrival.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Ohio and 21 other states meet the metrics to qualify for a travel advisory because of “significant community spread” of COVID-19.

Enforcement will be conducted at the states’ airports, hotels and other travel hubs.

New Jersey’s travel advisory also asks travelers from Ohio and 21 other states to quarantine for 14 days.

The advisory applies to people entering New Jersey via train, bus, car, or any method of transportation.

New Jersey officials say the self-quarantine period “is voluntary, but compliance is expected.”

Connecticut’s travel advisory mirrors New York’s and says that travelers are required to self-quarantine and self-monitor their health for 14-days.

Only New York’s advisory has an enforcement team in place at this time.

Here is the complete of states under the travel advisory for Connecticut, New Jersey and New York:

  • Alabama
