PROVIDENCE, RI (WLNE) – Rhode Island has been removed from Massachusetts’ list of  lower risk states that were exempt from their COVID-19 travel order.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health says this is due to increases in both Rhode Island’s positive test rate and cases per 100,000.

The guidance states that all travelers arriving in the Bay State from Rhode Island must fill out a form, quarantine for 14-days, or produce a negative COVID-19 test.

Exemptions do apply for regular commuters between the two states.

The updated travel guidance takes effect on Friday, Aug. 7.
