Gov. Andrew Cuomo, along with the governors of New Jersey and Connecticut, issued a joint travel advisory, effective right now, for anyone traveling from states with high coronavirus cases, requiring people to quarantine after returning.Anyone who plans to travel will have to quarantine for 14 days, according to Gov. Cuomo.
The three governors made the announcement, saying that because everyone has worked so hard to get the numbers of cases down in our regions, they don’t want to see those numbers go back up because people are traveling and bringing the virus with them.
They say that this applies to states with a COVID-19 positivity rate of higher than 10%.
Those states include Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah and Texas. Cuomo says that those are the states for now, but they can change as the infection rate changes.
With school being finished soon and people wanting to take vacation trips, it’s especially important to keep in mind that this is not just for people who are coming to the tri-state area from out of town, it also goes for local residents who are visiting those states and plan to come back.
The travel advisory went into effect at midnight.
Gov. Cuomo says that is up to each individual governor to enforce the advisory. He says that anyone violating the quarantine could be fined, starting at $ 2,000.
