CHICAGO (CBS) — The City of Chicago is doing away with its COVID-19 travel order and replacing it with a travel advisory.

The city’s Department of Public Health is making the switch because no U.S. states have been on its restricted list for the third week in a row.

Under the rules, anyone coming to Chicago from states in the Orange Tier, with more than 15 coronavirus cases a day per 100,000 residents, had to quarantine or show proof of a negative COVID test upon arriving.

There are no states in that tier now, and only three in the Yellow Tier with 10 cases per 100,000 residents or more – Missouri with 12.4, New York with 11.6, Wyoming with 10.3, and Nevada with 10.1.

The city said its emergency travel order – which required people coming from COVID hotspots to quarantine – could be reinstated if there is a significant surge in cases.
