    With all of the recent travel bans and shelter in place orders by the governors of many states, I am a little concerned about potential highway travel restrictions for an upcoming haul from Annapolis MD to Hartford, CT. Have any of you guys experienced any recent travel issues relating to these recent travel protocols?

    Not sure about NE, but Texas I20 had signs "Personal Travel from Louisiana must Quarantine starting March 30"

    Florida is stopping traffic and doing checks for Hot Spot Runners.
    I looked at the traffic map today and it was backed up on i95 south for about 2 miles between the Fruit Fly check and the coops.

    i10 east had almost the same look.

    I did NOT see it for myself.
    I heard the news reports that they WOULD be doing it, and apparently they are.

    Told the NY, NJ, CT, and Louisiana folks to just stay home.
    I guess they can't stop them from entering, but I bet they take their info and keep track of them to make sure they quarantine for 2+ weeks.

    Some states are putting up roadblocks at the state line to intercept and turn around vehicles, for example Texas facing off vs Louisana cars.

    Those orders expand to include most other infected hot spots in the USA by air, train etc.

    Trucking is exempt as you are vital to the Nation.

    Arkansas is still open with exception of Little Rock and Pine Bluff. No personal travel of any kind outside o your home at curfew 9PM to 5 am for all and youth from 7 am to 2 pm. They will be intercepted.

    We expect Arkansas to close to personal travel relatively soon. It can happen as soon as our Governor signs a order.
