Travelers from 10 more states will have to self-quarantine if they come to New York State, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Tuesday.
One state already on the list was removed.
Added were: Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia and Washington report high-enough Covid-19 list to require quarantines,the governor said. Minnesotra was removed from the list.
The quarantine applies to any person arriving from a state with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or a state with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
“As infection rates increase in 41 other states, our numbers continue to steadily decline, thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers and our incremental, data-driven opening. Yesterday, we had our lowest death toll since the pandemic began – and with no fatalities in New York City. While today’s numbers are encouraging, we must remain vigilant,” Cuomo said.
