The Chicago Department of Public Health removed 16 states from its COVID-19 Travel Advisory on Tuesday because their new daily rates of infection have spent at least a week below 15 per 100,000 residents: Arizona, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming. The change leaves 18 states and one territory on the travel advisory list. But eight more states are due to come off the list next week because their cases have dropped below 15 per 100,000: New Mexico, California, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Oregon, North Carolina, Montana and Alabama.  

Michael Claffey has stepped down as director of public affairs for the Chicago Department of Transportation, a role he held since 2015, he announced Tuesday. He will become communications manager at the Illinois Department of Public Health.
