COLUMBUS (WJW) — The Ohio Department of Health has released an updated map of states that Ohioans are advised against visiting due to high concentrations of coronavirus outbreaks.

The states now on the travel advisory are South Dakota, Kansas, Iowa, Idaho and Alabama, all of which are reporting a positive testing rate of 15% or higher. South Dakota and Idaho tie for the highest percentage of positive cases with 24%. An accurate positivity rate could not be calculated from Oregon, Texas, Kentucky or Mississippi.
