The Massachusetts Department of Public Health on Friday removed four states from its “high-risk” travel list.

According to story reported on by WHDH/News 7 Boston, travelers coming or returning to the Bay State from Colorado, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia will no longer have to quarantine for two weeks upon arrival or produce a negative COVID-19 test.

Other states that Massachusetts have deemed “low-risk” include Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont.

Under Gov. Charlie Baker’s travel order, people visiting from all other states must self-isolate for 14 days or provide a negative test that is no more than 3-days-old. The order also applies to Massachusetts residents who are returning to the state.

If you violate the travel restrictions, you could face a fine of up to $500 a day.

If you're just passing through Massachusetts or coming in for work, you are exempt from the order.
