Anyone traveling from Arkansas or Missouri to Chicago will now either have to have a negative COVID test or be quarantined for 10 days upon arrival.

That according to a travel advisory by the City of Chicago that was issued on Tuesday.

The order was issued in response to increasing coronavirus infections in both states.

Recent Johns Hopkins University research data showed that Arkansas leads the country for new cases per capita.

Meanwhile, Missouri has also been grappling with a large spike in COVID infections.
State health officials said 6,804 cases have been confirmed over the past 7 days as of Tuesday.
