NJ will no longer utilize previously outlined metrics to inform of travel advisory, all non-essential interstate travel is strongly discouraged

NEW JERSEY – As COVID-19 cases continue to rise at an alarming rate throughout our nation, New Jersey will no longer utilize previously outlined metrics to inform its travel advisory, according to Governor Phil Murphy.

Given the increased risk of spreading COVID-19 for both residents who travel outside the state and for visitors into the state, New Jersey continues to strongly discourage all non-essential interstate travel at this time, Murphy said

Travelers and residents returning from any U.S. state or territory beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) should self-quarantine at their home, hotel, or other temporary lodging for the CDC recommended period, which is currently 14 days, Murphy said.

The Department of Health will issue additional information in the coming days regarding travel precautions and individuals should continue to abide by the state’s current guidance until a new policy is issued, Murphy said.
