Some Travelers From Out of State Will Face Quarantine, Cuomo Says

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.

In March, Florida imposed a quarantine on visitors from New York, citing the level of infections in the Empire State.
