There are more than a dozen states on the list, including Utah, which was added Tuesday. City officials say Chicagoans who travel to any of the states must quarantine for two weeks upon return.

Visitors arriving from those states must do the same. Meanwhile, Illinois reported 1,466 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday and 20 additional deaths.
