I would argue that someone returning to say VT who is a resident has a home to quarantine in. A visitor does not, and would have to pay for lodging for an extra 2 weeks, forcing them to spend extra money, essentially a tax on out of state visitors. States cannot set entry requirements that is essentially charging a fee to non residents. I believe this is unconstitutional, and these state travel restrictions can be thrown out as a violation of the interstate commerce clause. This is discrimination against non residents.I can travel within the State of Mass without restriction. No quarantine, no testing. I live less than a mile from Lynn, Mass one of the hottest spots in Mass. Yet if I DARE got to NH, ME, or VT and home I have to quarantine? I think a judge would look VERY closely at this.
