Under the rules, anyone coming to Chicago from Orange-level states, with more than 15 cases of coronavirus per day per 100,000 population, had to quarantine or show proof of a negative COVID test upon arrival.
There are currently no states in this level, and only three in the yellow level with 10 cases per 100,000 people or more – Missouri with 12.4, New York with 11.6, Wyoming with 10.3 and Nevada with 10.1.
