38 States Now on NJ’s Travel Quarantine List

Michigan, Ohio, and Virginia have been added to the travel quarantine advisory for people returning to or visiting New Jersey, bringing the total number of states and territories included to 38.

People traveling to New Jersey from the 38 states or territories with significant community spread of COVID-19 should quarantine for a 14-day period from the time of last contact within the state or territory.

The travel advisory applies to anyone arriving from a state or territory with a positive COVID-19 test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or a state with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.

States and territories included in the updated travel advisory are: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Iowa, Idaho, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

“As cases have increased within our own state and we work to contain clusters, it is vital to ensure that we are taking all steps necessary to stop the further spread of COVID-19 from out of state,” said New Jersey Governor Murphy. “It remains critically important for anyone arriving to New Jersey from these 38 states and territories to get tested for COVID-19 and self-quarantine for 14 days.”

Travelers and New Jersey residents who are returning from the 38 states and territories should self-quarantine at their homes, a hotel, or another temporary lodging place. People should leave the place of self-quarantine only to seek medical care or to obtain food and other essential items, officials said.

The list of states will be updated on a rolling basis and is accessible online.


TOMORROW ON ZOOM – A Proud Heritage: The African American History of the Sourland Region

Montgomery Township’s One Montgomery Committee is honored to host a very special Zoom webinar on Tuesday 10/20 at 6pm as part of the Montgomery Mosaic initiative entitled “A Proud Heritage: The African American History of the Sourland Region” by speakers Elaine Buck and Beverly Mills, two of the founders of the Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum [https://www.ssaamuseum.org/].

Register for the webinar at:


Learn about the African American presence in this region dating back to colonial times which has been left out of our local history. Buck and Mills also co-authored a book If These Stones Could Talk. The book aims to provide a clearer understanding of the African American experience and their accomplishments in Hopewell Valley and surrounding area.

Looking very much forward to this presentation as we learn about an important part of our community’s heritage. Please share with your networks and others who may be interested..
