Massachusetts exempts 4 more states from quarantine requirement

By David Mumford


Massachusetts has added four new states to its quarantine exemption list. Passengers from Colorado, Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia no longer have to self-isolate on arrival or present a negative Covid test.

A reminder of how the rules work there: Anyone arriving from a “high-risk” state must either present a PCR Covid test that is less than 72 hours old or enter quarantine for 14 days, while there are no requirements for travellers from “low-risk” states. There’s a travel form to fill in too.

Aviation is considered an essential business by the U.S. Federal Government. The guidance issued by Massachusetts states that flight crew are “exempt from quarantine while they are commuting to or from or while at work”,  but goes on to say that “for the first 14-days after arrival, when the worker is not at work or commuting to work they must quarantine.”

The classifications change frequently, so be sure to check the latest info on the official government site
