Travelers From 8 More States Face NY Quarantine

Travelers from eight more states will be required to quarantine for 14 days if they come to New York, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Tuesday.

The latest additions to the quarantine rule are: California, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada and Tennessee.

The New York 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% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.

“As an increasing number of states around the country fight significant community spread, New York is taking action to maintain the precarious safety of its phased, data-driven reopening,”  Cuomo said. “We’ve set metrics for community spread just as we’ve set metrics for everything the state does to fight COVID-19, and eight more states have reached the level of spread required to qualify for New York’s travel advisory, meaning we will now require individuals traveling to New York from those states to quarantine for 14 days.”

The full, updated list of states on the travel advisory is below:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Iowa
  • Idaho
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • North Carolina
  • Nevada
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah

The executive order for the quarantine says that the Department of Health will  issue a travel advisory to be communicated widely at all major points of entry into New York, including on highway message boards and in all New York airports informing travelers of the quaratine.

The governor also confirmed 524 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 393,454 confirmed cases in New York State.

Suffolk County reported the second-highest number of new cases in the state, with 46; New York City leads the state with  240; Nassau reported 27.
