KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas Department of Health and Environment altered its quarantine list on Wednesday.

KDHE added three states to its list: Alabama, Arizona and Arkansas.

Any Kansan who has traveled to one of those on or after June 17 is asked to quarantine for 14 days.

The same request applies to travelers who visited Maryland on or after May 12, were on a cruise ship or river cruise on or after March 15, or traveled internationally on or after March 15.

KDHE removed six states from its quarantine list, including Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island, for people who return June 17 and later.

Anyone notified directly by public health officials that they may have come into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 should also quarantine.

The department said it would review and update its quarantine list next on July 1.
