The state made these changes on Friday that go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, November 14. Low-risk states currently are:

  1. Hawaii
  2. Maine
  3. New Hampshire

California has been removed as lower-risk, that change goes into effective 12:01 a.m. on November 14 as well.

If you are going to Massachusetts after visiting a state that’s not on the list above, you are required to fill out the state’s travel form, and then quarantine for 14 days unless you can provide a negative COVID-19 test 72-hours before arriving.

Failure to complete the form can cost you a $500 fine per day.
