Alaska and Montana added to NYS travel advisory

Submitted

Tue, Sep 1st 2020 10:05 am

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday announced two additional states – Alaska and Montana – meet the metrics to qualify for New York state's COVID-19 travel advisory. No areas have been removed.

The advisory requires individuals who have traveled to New York from areas with significant community spread to quarantine for 14 days. The quarantine applies to any person arriving from an area with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or an area with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average.

New York state's infection rate has been below 1% for 25 straight days – though not in Western New York. The number of patients in ICUs remained at 109, the lowest number since March 15. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and other data points are available at forward.ny.gov.

"As we continue to pursue a phased, data driven reopening, the number of areas that remain on New York's travel advisory is a stark reminder of the continued extent of the COVID-19 crisis throughout the nation," Cuomo said. "Our ability to protect our state and fight the virus begins with what we do here at home, and that's why it's so important that New Yorkers wear masks, socially distance and wash their hands, and why local governments need to enforce state guidance. Everyone stay safe and be ‘New York Tough,’ and we will get through this together."
