PITTSBURGH — Pennsylvania’s travel advisory list because of COVID-19 now includes 40 states.

Included on the list, which was updated Nov. 13, are three neighboring states: New Jersey, Ohio, West Virginia, Delaware and Maryland.

Non-essential travel to and from those states is highly discouraged by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
