For the first time since the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) began issuing its Emergency Travel Order in July of 2020, no states are in the “orange” tier that would necessitate a quarantine, full vaccination, or a negative COVID test for anyone arriving in Chicago. Due to improving conditions around the country and the ongoing up-take of the COVID-19 vaccine, no states are above the 15 cases per 100,000 residents per day threshold. Seven states that had been in the orange tier when the previous Travel Order was issued two weeks ago have moved to the yellow tier. Those states are Colorado, Florida, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, West Virginia and Washington. Based on current data, the only states that are above 10 cases a day per 100,000 residents are Washington, Colorado, Wyoming, and West Virginia. No Midwest states are above 7.9 cases per day, per 100,000 residents:

State – Cases/100,000
Indiana – 7.9
Michigan – 7.9
Illinois- 7.3
Missouri – 7.3
Minnesota – 7.1
Wisconsin – 4.3
Iowa – 3.7
