Alaska, New Mexico, Ohio, Rhode Island removed from list

ICU patients drop to 120 – new low since March 15; lowest number of intubations – 60 – since mid-March

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday announced two additional states and the Virgin Islands meet the metrics to qualify for the travel advisory requiring individuals who have traveled to New York from those areas - all of which have significant community spread – to quarantine for 14 days. The newly added states are Hawaii and South Dakota.

The quarantine applies to any person arriving from an area with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a seven-day rolling average, or an area with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a seven-day rolling average.

"New York went from one of the worst situations in the country, to an example for the rest of the nation to follow," Cuomo said. "Our numbers continue to remain low and steady, which shows this virus will respond to an approach based on science, not politics. In order to protect this progress, we must keep up our efforts – we cannot go back to the hell we experienced a few months ago, which is why we are adding Hawaii, South Dakota and Virgin Islands to the travel advisory."
