WISCONSIN — Wisconsin will likely be added to Chicago's Emergency Travel Order next week, according to CNN.

The Chicago Department of Health Commissioner, Dr. Allison Arwady, said Tuesday that Wisconsin is not being added to the emergency order as of now. However, she said that the state likely will be added next week.

Should Wisconsin be added to the list, Wisconsinites would have to quarantine for 14 days when first arriving in Chicago.

The news comes after Wisconsin passed 15 cases per every 100,000 people, according to Arwady.

Wisconsin has previously been added to Chicago's Emergency Travel Order but has since been removed due to lowering case percentages.

Under past orders, the move did not limit Wisconsinites from going to Chicago for work. However, it did limit them to only work activities.
