Today, during a press conference, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo updated the list of must quarantine states. If a state is on the list, New Yorkers who travel to those states must quarantine for 14 days upon return to the Empire State. Visitors to New York from those states must also quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.

Today, September 8th, the governor removed Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands from the list. During that same press conference, Cuomo announced that four states were being added to the list, some for the second time.

The four states added today include Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, and West Virginia.
