Oklahoma and Iowa were both added to Chicago’s quarantine list on Tuesday.

Those who come to Chicago from Oklahoma and don’t quarantine after arriving face a fine of up to $500 per day for any day they did not quarantine.
New York enacted a similar ban against Oklahomans last week, and Pennsylvania is advising travelers to quarantine after returning to the state from Oklahoma.
