States Added to New York’s Coronavirus Quarantine List
Add Delaware, Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia to New York’s list of locations where visitors are required to quarantine for 14 days once they enter the Empire State.
During the weekly revision to the state’s quarantine list, Governor Andrew Cuomo September 8 announced the four states had met the criteria for quarantine with a positive test rate higher than ten per 100,000 residents over a seven-day rolling average.
Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands were taken off the list.
There are currently 34 high-risk states and Guam under the COVID-19 travel advisory.
The Governor says moving into a different, post-Labor Day period, people are getting back to work, schools are opening, colleges, with a lot of people from those risk states, are opening and traffic is starting to increase so the state has to remain vigilant to avoid seeing infection rates rise again.
