Travelers visiting Massachusetts from out of state, soon will have to prove they have recently tested negative for COVID-19--or quarantine for two weeks.

They'll now have to complete an on-line form before arriving. Those who fail to comply could be slapped with a fine.

WBUR's Steve Brown tells us Gov. Charlie Baker is hoping the move will mean the state's current low infection rate will stay that way.
