Puerto Rico meets metrics to qualify

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday announced six states – California, Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada and Ohio – have been removed from New York state's COVID-19 travel advisory. The Northern Mariana Islands were also removed. Puerto Rico has been added.

The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and other helpful data points are available at forward.ny.gov.

"When other states and territories make progress fighting COVID-19, that's good for New York and, while I am glad to see areas removed from the travel advisory list, it still remains far too long," Cuomo said. "Make no mistake: We must continue to be ‘New York Tough’ and stay smart. Wearing masks, social distancing and hand washing is what tamed this beast in New York and we must keep it up."
