As of July 14 there are 22 states that meet the criteria:
  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Iowa
  • Idaho
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi
  • North Carolina
  • New Mexico
  • Nevada
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah

Governor Ned Lamont announced Monday that passengers arriving at Bradley International Airport will soon have to start filling out forms about their travel history and where they intend to self-quarantine if they've been in one of the named states. However, Lamont says violators will not be subject to fines at this point, and those entering the state my motor vehicle will not be subject to the same registration requirements.
