Five states have been added to the list from where travelers to New York State need to quarantine for 14 days to curb the spread of coronavirus, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday.
Arizona, Minnesota, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Wyoming have been added to the list, which includes areas with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or an area with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.
“For a clear example of the continuing extent of the COVID crisis in America, look no further than New York’s travel advisory list,” the governor said. “The virus’ spread across the country—new cases have increased more than 15 percent in the last 10 days—makes it all the more urgent that we stay vigilant here at home.”
The list includes 34 states, plus Guam and Puerto Rico. New York City has set up checkpoints at bridges and tunnels to ensure travelers from other states fill out the required contact tracing paperwork or face fines.
The full, updated travel advisory list is as follows:
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Puerto Rico
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
