Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday New York, Connecticut and New Jersey will require travelers from certain states to quarantine when coming to the tri-state area.
All individuals traveling from states with significant community spread of COVID into any of the three states must self-quarantine for 14 days. As of Wednesday, those states are Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Utah, Texas and Washington.
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% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
This travel advisory is effective midnight Wednesday.
It applies to travelers arriving from states that have a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or a state with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
