U.S. Virgin Islands added to CT’s travel advisory list | News

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – The U.S. Virgin Islands were added to Connecticut’s travel advisory list on Tuesday. 

No states or territories were removed. 

The governor’s office continues to say that New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island meet the criteria for the travel advisory, but due to the interconnected nature of the region, they are not being included on the list. 

At this time, Gov. Ned Lamont said he highly discourages all nonessential travel to New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. 

Over the summer, Connecticut joined New York and New Jersey to implement a regional travel advisory, which would limit people traveling into those three states from other areas that have a high spread of COVID-19.

Folks traveling into CT, NY, or NJ from any of the states on the list must quarantine for 14 days.

As of Nov. 17, the following locations were listed in the state’s travel

Paris has tightened rules on wearing face masks in public
Paris has tightened rules on wearing face masks in public

France is days away from being added to the UK’s quarantine list, according to senior sources within the Government. 

The Foreign Office is due to update its ‘safe’ list this week, with Portugal hoping to gain its first travel corridor of the pandemic, meaning returning holidaymakers will not be required to self-isolate for 14 days. France, however, is one of several countries in Europe to have seen a rise in its number of coronavirus infections in recent days. 

Paul Charles, spokesperson for campaign group Quash Quarantine and founder of travel consultancy The PC Agency, said he understood France, along with Malta, Switzerland, Poland and the Netherlands, could be subject to fresh restrictions.

Around 500,000 British holidaymakers are believed to be in Spain.

A further 1.6 million people are estimated to be booked to travel from the UK to Spain in the next month alone; it is by far the most popular destination for British holidaymakers.

These are the implications for their trips.

What has happened?

On 25 July, the government warned against all non-essential travel to mainland Spain. It was in response to several spikes of coronavirus infection in the northeastern provinces of Aragon, Navarra and Catalonia.

Less than 48 hours later, the Foreign Office also advised against all non-essential travel there to the Balearic and Canary Islands.

The FCO now deems all of Spain to constitute “an unacceptably high risk for British travellers.”

In addition, all holidaymakers returning to the UK must self-isolate at home for 14 days, following the date of their arrival.
