TOPEKA, Kan. — Health officials in Kansas have added Louisiana and Colorado to their quarantine list.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said Friday that anyone who has traveled to Louisiana and anywhere in Colorado on or after March 27 should quarantine for 14 days upon return to the state.
