Washingtonian is keeping you up to date on the coronavirus around DC.

The District of Columbia on Monday added five states, including Delaware and West Virginia, to the list of high-risk jurisdictions. People visiting from these states must quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival in DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office said. The others added to the list are Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming.

California, Hawaii, and Ohio came off the list, which catalogs states where new Covid-19 cases average 10 per 10,000 residents per day.

Delaware has been on and off DC’s list over the past few months. Maryland and Virginia are exempt from the District’s travel restrictions.
