New Mexico has been added to the list of states from where travelers to New York State must self-quarantine for 14 days to curb the spread of coronavirus, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday.
The list 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. No states were removed from the list this week.
“We have to stop the spread before we go backwards on the progress we’ve made,” the governor said.
The list now 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
- New Mexico
- Puerto Rico
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
