CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Ohio Department of Health released an updated map of the COVID-19 travel advisory with seven states now listed.

Individuals traveling to Ohio from seven states with a coronavirus infection rate over 15% are urged to self-quarantine for two weeks. They are not required to do so.

The advisory applies to residents of Ohio returning to the state from one of the listed areas, as well as to visitors of Ohio.

The advisory was first issued after recent incident in Belmont County when a group of students traveled to the COVID-19 “hot spot” of Myrtle Beach, S.C.
